(Where Do I Begin?) Love Story [Lai/Sigman]




Where do I begin
To tell the story of how great a love can be
The sweet love story that is older than the sea
The simple truth about the love she brings to me
Where do I start

With her first hello
She gave new meaning to this empty world of mine
There'll never be another love, another time
She came into my life and made the living fine
She fills my heart

She fills my heart with very special things
With angels' songs , with wild imaginings
She fills my soul with so much love
That everywhere I go I'm never lonely
With you my love, who could be lonely
I reach for her hand-it's always there

How long does it last
Can love be measured by the hours in a day
I have no answers now but this much I can say
I know I'll need her till the stars all burn away
And she'll be there



Theme from the 1970 movie "Love Story". Teased at the "final" Pumpkins show on 2000/12/02 by Mike Garson on piano, after Billy asks Dennis Flemion of the Frogs "Do you wanna sing a little love story, Dennis? ...Love Story?" following their rendition of Blissed and Gone. Originally an instrumental (music by Francis Lai), lyrics were added by Carl Sigman after the theme became popular.
