SUSANNA HOFFS: WEAK WITH LOVE


If you grew up in the 80's then you remember the beautiful and talented SUSANNA HOFFS of The Bangles...
Personally, I think she has one of the most appealing voices of any singer from the last 30 years. She is always pleasurable to listen to.
Below is Susanna's beautiful ballad WEAK WITH LOVE, a track from her 1996 solo self-titled album.


December eighth in nineteen-eighty
I was home on Avondale
Boys were playin' basketball
When the news came in.

And I heard my brother say, "Oh my God!"
I said, "What's the matter, Jesse?"
He said, "I don't wanna tell you this"
And he would not meet my eyes.

Please comfort me
And shelter me
I am weak with love
Comfort me
And shelter me
I am weak with love

The policeman laid him in the police car
He was shot and bleeding
Then he said, "Are you John Lennon?"
John couldn't speak but he nodded "yeah".

And I heard my brother say, "Oh my God!"
I said, "What's the matter, Jesse?"
He said, "I don't wanna tell you this"
So he took me for a drive.

Please comfort me
And shelter me
For I am weak with love
Comfort me
And shelter me
Well, I am weak with love

Love, love, love.
