ONE LOVE (Richard Carpenter (m) / John Bettis (l) ) As sung by the Carpenters < Carpenters > 1971 One love in my young life Took me somewhere I had never been And I want to live again, breath again. In the shelter of his brightly woven love song So long I have wanted love to be Sitting just this near to me Now my waiting heart is free. Few are the choices we are given The sands of time pass quickly by. One dream of my young life Now stands holding out his hand to me Now I can't help but believe That my whole life will be Spent in one love. (bridge) Few are the choices we are given The sands of time pass quickly by. One dream of my young life Now stands holding out his hand to me Now I can't help but believe That my whole life will be Spent in one love. 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 "Carpenter" 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 and SUPERSTAR (Transcribed by David Story May 2014)
