I’ll Never Change All My Colours For You

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: COLOURS

I thought of lots of songs which feature individual colours, but then a song came to mind which I have always loved. One of the best singers singing one of her best power ballads. I love it!

I am just going to take the opportunity to mention that I am still rather shattered with work being so demanding. I know I have struggled to keep up recently. I just have to prioritize on rest in me evenings. But it is so sweet to see your comments when I have time to look at my blog.

Enjoy the phenomenal Whitney Houston with “I Have NothingI”….

Share my life, take me for what I am
‘Cause I’ll never change all my colours for you
Take my love, I’ll never ask for too much
Just all that you are and everything that you do

I don’t really need to look very much further
I don’t wanna have to go where you don’t follow
I won’t hold it back again, this passion inside
Can’t run from myself
There’s nowhere to hide

Don’t make me close one more door
I don’t wanna hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don’t walk away from me…
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don’t have you, you, you, you, you

You see through right to the heart of me
You break down my walls with the strength of your love
I never knew love like I’ve known it with you
Will a memory survive, one I can hold on to

I don’t really need to look very much further
I don’t wanna have to go where you don’t follow
I won’t hold it back again, this passion inside
I can’t run from myself
There’s nowhere to hide
Your love I’ll remember forever

Don’t make me close one more door
I don’t wanna hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don’t walk away from me…
I have nothing, nothing, nothing…

Don’t make me close one more door
I don’t wanna hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don’t walk away from me, no
Don’t walk away from me
Don’t you dare walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don’t have you, you
If I don’t have you, oh, ooh, ooh

  1. Far be it for me to complain about a Whitney Houston song, because everything she ever did, I love, but this song does not contain any color. I was hoping that this prompt would not create confusion, but you can always write me if you are not sure Mel. ‘I Have Nothing’ was written by David Foster and Linda Thompson for the soundtrack of the 1992 movie The Bodyguard. Whitney Houston signed a contract allowing her to select which songs she would perform in the film, and she agreed to sing this.

    1. Sorry Jim – sometimes you say we have to strictly use the word you have chosen in the title or lyrics so I was scared to choose a song with a colour in it instead. I did not realize we could interpret this one our own way.

  2. I understand life demands right now. I have been lacking in my blogging as well. I have missed SLS several times in the past months. Great share this week with Whitney! Tragic that she couldn’t get her personal life together. 🙂

  3. Wow!! This was one of my favorite songs in the early 90s. I remember putting on my boyfriend’s large headphones and singing my heart out. I’m pretty sure I sounded terrible- as I did a few minutes ago- singing from the top of my lungs. Thanks for sharing this song. I really needed to hear it at this particular moment. 💕
