Sounds like she sang this sing for Richard... She hit it with every single note, each phrase, each word

Somehow i never heard this song until now. I especially like when she hits the high notes on this one, sounds so cute.

Karen knows I remember when we were together. I just did not know your life would be over so soon. Love you still.

This song brings me to my knees when Karen says, 'and when my life is over, remember when we were together...' Thanks to the Universe for giving us Karen and Richard Carpenter.

pure heaven! If anyone can bring you into a better place it was the Carpenters.
Report as inappropriate
By far the best female easy listening singer in the last 50 years! The Carpenters had such a warm, romantic sound and they just don't write songs like theirs anymore. I never get tired of hearing the Carpenters voices blended together so wonderfully delightful! She died so very young and we certainly missed out on many more wonderful Carpenter songs!

Navigate to the Leon Russel version if you want to read the lyrics.

where are the lyrics? I grew up with the Carpenters, it was so sad how she ended up getting so ill.

I think it does not get better, then it gets better, pure greatness

She was truly an angle that wasn't able to stand up to the trials and tribulations we all face each day
