… and he was one of the greatest vocalists of the 20th century.
He was the lead singer of The Platters.
Tony Williams. His name was Tony Williams.
In the spirit of posting more beautiful things, and because Trad Catholics have been giving me crap about hearing secular love songs as informative of the love for man by the Triune Godhead and vice versa…
…here is “My Prayer”, “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes”, and “Harbor Lights”.
‘Tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all… y’all.
(That’s poetry! And I didn’t even know-etry!)
When the twilight is gone, you come into my heart, and here in my heart you will stay… while I pray.
My prayer is to linger with you, at the end of the day, in a dream that’s divine….
They said “Some day you’ll find all who love are blind,”
When your heart’s on fire, you must realize, smoke gets in your eyes….
Now, laughing friends deride tears I cannot hide
So, I smile and say….
I saw the harbor lights, they only told me we were parting.
The same old harbor lights that one brought you to me.
I watched the harbor lights, how could I help if tears were starting?
Goodbye to tender nights beside the slivery sea….
