Our relationship was well marked by songs from The Waterboys. The first song Rich took the trouble to record and send me was his version of The Waterboys “When Ye Go Away” which you’ll find on this website with Richard’s other recordings.
However, this is a song that he would play the original sound-track to and sing for me. And at the end of the song, he would look at me and sing “A man is in love, and he’s me”. Then he would start to pretend to play a fiddle or do a jig, which was very adorable. Everytime I hear this song, my heart smiles.
A Man Is In Love
A man is in love, how do I know?
He came and walked with me, and he told me so
In a song he sang, and then I knew
A man is in love with you
A man is in love, how did I hear?
I heard him talk too much whenever you’re near
He whispered your name when his eyes were closed
A man is in love and he knows
A man is in love, how did I guess?
I figuered it out while he was watching you dress
He’d give you his all, if you’d but agree
A man is in love and he’s me
