Oh darling, will you ever change your mind?

Yeah, I've been feeling left behind

Like a shadow in your light

In your light, in your light


Ah honey won't you say that I'm the one?

And if you think you're, you're gonna run

Well you know ...


I'm gonna be around you, all about you

Always by your side

I'm gonna dream about you, scheme about you

Love you all the time

I'm gonna catch you lady, catch you lady, yeah


The news is all over town

You better not let me down

Keep tellin' me you're feelin' good

As good as you ever could

Please tell me that you'll never go, ah-ha, no, no

Tell me that you'll never go, never go


Ah lately, I'm like a watch that's overwound

And I've got both feet off the ground

'Cause you see ...


I'm gonna be so busy, oh my pretty

Love you night and day

And through the rain and shine

I'll make you mine

I'll love you come what may


I'm gonna catch you lady, catch you lady

Catch you lady uh huh


I'm gonna catch you lady, catch you lady

Catch you lady uh huh


I'm gonna (I'm gonna) I'm gonna (I'm gonna)

I'm gonna (I'm gonna) I'm gonna catch you lady

I'm gonna (I'm gonna) I'm gonna (I'm gonna)

I'm gonna (I'm gonna) catch you lady

I'm gonna (I'm gonna) I'm gonna (I'm gonna)

I'm gonna (I'm gonna) I'm gonna catch you lady

I'm gonna (I'm gonna) I'm gonna (I'm gonna)

I'm gonna (I'm gonna) catch you lady

A B-side song from one of the greatest

albums of all time,

a song that received absolutely no airplay,

no accolades of any kind,

but one that has forever captured my heart.

It's hopeful yet scared,

sad yet joyous,

tentative but somehow still bold.

Back then, as today,

radio stations weren't concerned

with new music discovery,

despite what they claimed-and still claim--to the contrary.

And so many great songs were left

to languish in obscurity,

even though they were better

than the overplayed hits from the same album.

This is a sterling example of just such a song.
