Bye Bye Love Submit Correct Lyrics


Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness
Hello loneliness
I think I'm-a gonna cry

Bye bye love
Bye bye sweet caress
Hello emptiness
I feel like I could die
Bye bye my love goodbye

There goes my baby with someone new
She sure looks happy, I sure am blue
She was my baby till he stepped in
Goodbye to romance that might have been

Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness
Hello loneliness
I think I'm-a gonna cry

Bye bye love
Bye bye sweet caress
Hello emptiness
I feel like I could die
Bye bye my love goodbye

I'm through with romance, I'm through with love
I'm through with countin' the stars above
And here's the reason that I'm so free
My lovin' baby is through with me

Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness
Hello loneliness
I think I'm-a gonna cry

Bye bye love
Bye bye sweet caress
Hello emptiness
I feel like I could die
Bye bye my love goodbye

Bye bye my love goodbye
Bye bye my love goodbye
Bye bye my love

My favorite Everly Brothers songs were Love Hurts and Change of Heart, but they didn't record many bad ones.

The Everlys, Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly were the influence for everyone who followed them.

Yeah, I just saw this, what a shame. The younger folks here may recognize the name but us older guys who grew up listening to their music know what a loss this really is.

RIP, Phil.

And that's a helluva list of people who followed them and were influenced by them.

I know John Lennon was a big fan of the Everly Brothers.

Many years ago, Phil Everly bummed a cigarette from my buddy Chuck when they performed at Danceland in Cedar Rapids. We were just dumb kids at the time and didn't realize who he was until they were on stage. He was a gentleman and talked with us for a couple of minutes before going back to his dressing room.

That's too bad. I thought they were older.

They were setting the world on fire back in the 50's early '60's, pre-Beatle, with Elvis, Ricky, Chuck and Fats. I recall very vividly listening to Joel A. Spivak in Houston, spinning the platters, lots of Everly Brothers on the charts.




Luckily, I have enough willpower to control the driving ambition that rages within me.

The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible." - Justice Janice Rogers Brown

Very Sad....one of the things in my Bucket list was to try to arrange Lunch with either of the boys. Uncle Phil will be missed and Daddy Don isn't nearly as fond of the public eye. Most Beautiful harmonies I've ever heard....Zebulon

Those of us who lived it had no clue what a special time in music history we were witnessing. We thought it would last forever.....

May he RIP.

Well said, but younger people here and, more so, everywhere else, might very well not even know the name. It's their misfortune. The Everly Brothers were a profound influence on virtually every harmony-based group that followed them in the sixties and seventies. I've lost track of the well-known singers I've come across who have given tribute to them for their influence and inspiration. Do what I've done; do yourself a favor and go look up some old videos on YouTube. They were terrific, and they led the way. RIP, Phil.

All very true, but who would have thought that harmony would go out of style in favor of semi synchronized chanting?

All things move in cycles; music is no exception. Melody and harmony may not be the most prevalent these days (and some "musical" forms have NONE), but they have not disappeared, and I'm sure will take ascendancy again some day.

Cathy's Clown and Wake Up Little Susie were always my favorites. Here is a story. My mom and dad ran a little beer joint in southern Mn in the 50's and 60's. The main mode of travel for entertainers touring the Midwest back then was by bus naturally. One day Phil and Don stopped in at my folks place. They were passing through most likely from Mpls./St. Paul. According to my mom it was in the afternoon and there were only a handful of customers in the place. My mom didn't recognize them right away but had a suspicion it was them. They ordered and beer and burger. My mom finally asked if they were the Everly's and they responded they were. They politely asked her not to say anything as they just wanted to stretch their legs and enjoy a beer and burger. She of course obliged.
When finished the shook my dads hand and Don gave my mom a hug. She was of course enthralled.

My mom and dad also had stories about Trini Lopez and Johnny Tillitson stopping in the place.

I guess back in the day with no music videos the entertainers could travel more at ease and go unrecognized most of the time.

I'm a Native Houstonian, born there a long, long time ago. We moved to the hill country north of San Antonio in 1949, but I was back there quite often to visit my grandparents.

I am a native Houstonian too. Glad you're back in the Lone Star State.
