Endless Love” is a song written by Lionel Richie and originally recorded as a duet between Richie and fellow soul singer Diana Ross, recorded for the eponymous 1981 movie starring Brooke Shields (which in turn adapted a novel). In this ballad, the singers declare their “endless love” for one another.

The song went to #1 in Australia, Canada and the US. It was Ross’ sixth and final chart-topper in America, and Richie’s first of five (as a solo artist). In 2011, Billboard named it the biggest duet of all-time.

It was later covered by soul singer Luther Vandross with R&B singer Mariah Carey, and also by country music singer Shania Twain. Richie’s friend (and sometimes co-worker) Kenny Rogers has also recorded the song.

[Verse]
My love
There’s only you in my life
The only thing that’s right
My first love
You’re every breath that I take
You’re every step I make
And I
I want to share
All my love with you
No one else will do
And your eyes
Your eyes, your eyes
They tell me how much you care
Ooh yes, you will always be
My endless love
Two hearts
Two hearts that beat as one
Our lives have just begun

Forever
(Ohhhhhh)
I’ll hold you close in my arms
I can’t resist your charms

[Chorus]
And love
Oh, love
I’ll be a fool
For you
I’m sure
You know I don’t mind
Oh, you know I don’t mind

[Verse 2]
Cause you
You mean the world to me
Oh
I know
I know
I’ve found in you
My endless love

[Bridge]
Oooh-woow
Boom, boom [x7]

[Chorus]
And love
Oh, love
I’ll be a fool
For you
I’m sure
You know I don’t mind
Oh, you know I don’t mind

[Outro]
And, yes
You’ll be the only one
Cause no one can deny
This love I have inside
And I’ll give it all to you
My love
My love, my love
My endless love

 

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
