(I'M CAUGHT BETWEEN) GOODBYE AND I LOVE YOU (Richard Carpenter (m) / John Bettis (l) ) Sung by The Carpenters 1975 < Horizon > I have somethin' to tell you And I know it won't be easy I've been thinking these past few days It might be time to leave. You're like a stranger Then you're a lover Never the same Always hard to believe. I'm caught between goodbye and I love you Never knowin' quite where I stand I'm caught between goodbye and I love you Fallin' both ways, nowhere to land. So constantly stranded I can't understand it This double life you've handed me Is like the devil and the deep blue sea. (bridge) If we go on much longer If my doubts grow any stronger Then I may have to let you go If only to survive. Give me a reason Why should I stay here I've tried so hard Just to keep love alive. I'm caught between goodbye and I love you Never knowin' quite where I stand I'm caught between goodbye and I love you Fallin' both ways, nowhere to land. So constantly stranded I can't understand it This double life you've handed me Is like the devil and the deep blue sea. NOTES: The Carpenters were a talented brother/ sister singer/songwriting duo hailing from Los Angeles CA USA. As of 2013, they had sold more than 100 million units (source BBC). Their distinctive soft rock sound provided 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 the death of Karen Carpenter in 1983. She was 32 years old. 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. < I'm Caught Between Goodbye And I Love You > was also released on the 'B' side of a 7 inch single in 1975. The 'A' side was < There's A Kind Of Hush > . (see elsewhere in this ILP database).n (Transcribed by David Story -February 2013)
