Roy Orbison – You Got ItBy
Every time I look into your lovely eyes,
I see a love that money just cant buy.
One look from you, I drift away.
I pray that you are here to stay..
Topping out the charts on April 15th, 1989 was You Got It – posthumously – Roy Orbison, 24 some years after hitting it big with Pretty Woman in 1964.
Roy passed away in December of 1988, I remember hearing the news and could hear his voice resonating and thinking, yet again, we lost another great.
Every time I look into your lovely eyes… followed up by.. you got it.
Do we get it? Or have we forgotten it?
Remember after 9/11 when a compassion emerged from the American People, one that made time stand still, a time when we were all grateful for the people in our lives, when a stranger held the door open for you, when someone helped you pick up your fallen groceries.
We don’t “got it” anymore – and it’s really not that hard to “get” back either, but no one seems to be willing to take the time to get back to basics.
Orbison is remembered for his many songs of “lost love”, let’s hope we can learn from Roy Orbison, the feelings that are buried within us, the compassion that we know others deserve and let’s get back to the basics..
