Howard Jones

Howard Jones (born John Howard Jones, 23 February 1955, Southampton, Hampshire, England) is a British musician, singer and songwriter. According to the Guinness Book of British Hit Singles & Albums, "Jones is an accomplished singer-songwriter who was a regular chart visitor in the mid 1980s with his brand of synthpop. Jones, who was equally popular in the U.S., appeared at Live Aid".Allmusic journalist, Stephen Thomas Erlewine adds, "Jones was one of the defining figures of mid 1980s synthpop. His music merged the technology intensive sound of New Wave with the cheery optimism of hippies and late 1960s pop. Jones racked up a string of hits in the mid and late 1980s, before he retreated into being a cult figure in the 1990s". more »

The time has come to watch you go watch you go
We weathered rough storms together
Couldn't conceive of the end
When I heard of your leavin'
It came as a shock and surprise
Like the deepest kinds of love
Lost on the inside
Locked right on the inside

What is the greatest expression of love,
To let go and wish well
But all these finer feelings 
have left me with tears to tell

I couldn't be the one to hold you stop you go
It is like stripping the soul
Letting all the finest pieces go
You know these feelings between us
Could not be expressed
You will never know my old secrets
They are so deeply felt they are so deeply felt

What is the greatest expression of love
To let go and wish well
But all these finer feelings have left me
What is the greatest expression of love,
To let go and wish well
But all these finer feelings 
have left me with tears to tell

Leaving me with my anecdoted and private jokes
The memory of a friend
You don't seem to know my old secrets
They are so deeply felt they are so deeply felt

What is the greatest expression of love
To let go and wish well
But all these finer feelings have left me
What is the greatest expression of love
To let go and wish well
But all these finer feelings 
have left me with tears to tell
But all these finer feelings 
have left me with tears to tell
