Albert Greene (born April 13, 1946), better known as Al Green or Reverend Al Green, is an American gospel and soul music singer. He reached the peak of his popularity in the 1970s, with hit singles such as "You Oughta Be With Me", "I'm Still In Love With You", "Love and Happiness", and "Let's Stay Together". In 2005, Rolling Stone named him No. 66 in their list of the '100 Greatest Artists of All Time'. The nomination stated that "people are born to do certain things, and Al was born to make us smile." The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted Green in 1995, referring to him as "one of the most gifted purveyors of soul music." Green has sold more than 20 million records. more »

Don't' look so sad
I know it's over
But life goes on
And this world
Keeps on turning
Yeah
Let's just be glad
We have this time
To spend together oh
There is no need
To watch the bridges
That we're burning hey oh

Lay your head on my pillow sweet babe
Hold your warm and tender body close to mine hey
Hear the whisper of the raindrops
Roll softly
Against my window hey hey oh late at night
Make believe you love me one more time hey
For the good times hey
For the good times

I'll get along
I'm sure you'll find another but baby please remember
I'll be here, I'm gon stay right here
And you should ever find that you need me yeah
Don't say a word
About tomorrow
Ah forever and ever and ever and ever
They'll be times
Enough for severance when you leave hey hey hey
For the good times
For the good times

Lay your head
On my pillow
Oh this is one time girl
Hold your warm and tender body close to mine
Hear the whisper
Of the raindrops
Rolling softly against my window
Oh you gotta do is
Oh you gotta do is make believe you love me one more time
For the good times
For the good times

Here's what you outta do is
Lay your head on my pillow
Hold your warm and tender body close to mines....
