MAYBE IT'S YOU (Danny Wilde / John Bettis / Richard Carpenter (m & l) ) As sung by the Carpenters < Close To You > 1970 Maybe it's you, maybe it's me Maybe it's just the constant rhythm of the sea Maybe it's just that I've never been the kind Who can pass a lucky penny by. Maybe it's wise, maybe it's not Maybe it's you who brought the caring I forgot Isn't it nice to talk about the special way That you smile whenever I'm around. Rising on the shore, the ocean came Walks along the waves of velveteen His only thought, was love for me. Couldn't we stay, or must you go Couldn't we stay and watch the splashing rocks we throw Only a fool would want to leave the paradise That I find whenever you're around Only a fool. (bridge) Isn't it nice to talk about the special way That you smile whenever I'm around. Rising on the shore, the ocean came Walks along the waves of velveteen His only thought, was love for me... Love for me. Couldn't we stay, or must you go Couldn't we stay and watch the splashing rocks we throw Only a fool would want to leave the paradise That I find whenever you're around Only a fool... Only a fool. Notes: The Carpenters were an talented brother/sister singer/songwriting duo born in New Haven CT USA, later moving to Downey CA (near Los Angeles) in 1963. In 1965, they embarked upon their historic musical journey. 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 the heartbreaking 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 historical significance' (older than 25 years) by honouring them with their prestigious award. The 1971 album "Carpenters" was the most successful release that this talented duo ever produced, both in North America and internationally. It contained the songs for which the Carpenters, to this day and forever, will be indelibly linked such as: RAINY DAYS AND MONDAYS LET ME BE THE ONE FOR ALL WE KNOW SUPERSTAR (Transcribed by David Story May 2014)
