ANOTHER SONG (Richard Carpenter (m) / John Bettis (l) ) As sung by the Carpenters < CLOSE TO YOU > 1970 The moon that rose now descended And the love once shared now have ended And soon the day would come. And when the day had come The light that fell at dawn was cold The warmth of you had gone. A taste of loneliness Cut through the earliness And oh, the winds sang of you. Softly, they said All of my favorite dreams were dead Leaving a cloud of sadness in my head. And though I'm buried in A sad song of the morning wind I know the day would bring Another song for me to sing. But when the day had come The light that fell at dawn was cold The warmth of you had gone. (bridge to end) Notes: The Carpenters were an talented brother/sister singer/songwriting duo hailing from Los Angeles CA USA. Their distinctive soft rock sound was a contrast to the loud and raucous sounds of the day. As well as singing, Karen was accomplished at drums and brother Richard at piano. Sadly, the duo's career ended prematurely with death of Karen Carpenter in 1983. She was 32 years old. While they were together, they released 11 albums and 30 singles. The Grammy Hall Of Fame recognized the Carpenters as providing music of 'lasting qualitative or history significance' (older than 25 years) by honouring them with their prestigious award.
