Story

I love movies. Especially the old classic movies.

This song, 'Speed of Light' was written with the intent to use the illustration that was given in the movie, 'It's A Wonderful Life', where Jimmy Stewart asks,

'Mary, what do you want? You want the moon? I'll throw a lasso around it and pull it down for you'.

Mary replies, 'I'll take it. Then what?'

And Jimmy answers, 'Then you'll swallow it, see, and the light will shoot out of your hair and fingers......'

I've always liked that line, so I wanted to incorporate it into a song.

So 'Speed of Light' was written around that one line.

 

Lyrics

Speed of Light
Words and Music © 1977 Dale Sechrest


There is magic in your touch - A light shining through your fingertips

And it keeps me traveling, To you at the speed of light

There is magic in your touch - Oceanwaves in your deep, deep eyes

And it keeps me traveling, To you at the speed of light

Still I wonder, yet I wonder, makes me wonder How I love you so much

There is beauty in your smile - That is far beyond any rainbow I have seen
And it keeps me traveling, To you at the speed of light

Still I wonder, yet I wonder, makes me wonder How I love you so much

Oh you are such a precious child, Gonna drive everybody wild
No one can compare to you, Your kind are far too few

You've got to be an angel Sent from up above
So full of precious beauty, So full of tender love

And it keeps me traveling, To you at the speed of light

Still I wonder, yet I wonder, makes me wonder How I love you so much

Oh loving you comes easy, the most easiest thing to do
But I've never loved someone so much
As much as I love you

You've got to be an angel Sent from up above
So full of precious beauty, So full of tender love

And it keeps me traveling To you at the speed of light

Still I wonder, yet I wonder, makes me wonder
How I love you so much
I love you so much
Yes, I love you so much
