From A HOLE IN THE WALL
Written by Marc Jordan & David Foster

Perfection, this is the right word to explain the absolute beauty of this magic ballad. Robbie Buchanan’s fender rhodes opens the show in the best Foster tradition soon joined by Marc Jordan’s tender vocal performance singing some of the best lyrics a love song has ever had. Add to the picture a warm sax solo courtesy of the ultra talented Ernie Watts and the silky sounds of Richard Page and Steve George’s backing vocals and the result is pure musical heaven. I highly recommend all to find a copy of this record – “A Hole In The Wall” – one of the best ever in the so called “westcoast tradition”.

Apart from “It’s Only Love” you’ll discover nine other amazing songs like “Margarita”, “Thieves” and the title track (another Foster original). Among the other musicians you can find people like Neil Stubenhaus, Dave Boruff, Steve Lukather, Jay Graydon, Mike Boddicker, Jerry Hey and David Foster too.

Lyrics

Baby as these days go by
I can see that love is in your eyes
you will need someone
to take you by the hand
and make it alright
life has left you innocent
you will need someone who
can defend you
you are so beautiful
don’t you hide away inside yourself

It’s only love that I’m after
it’s only love that I’m looking for
where is the love that I’m looking for
It’s only love that I’m after
one day at a time
you are all I ever have in mind

You say you need someone who
clings to you and makes you feel
like you’re alive
makes you feel warm inside
to make you feel that love
is yours forever

you are such a lovely one
you will need someone
who can protect you
someone to hold on
someone who can make
your dreams come true

It’s only love that I’m after
it’s only love that I’m looking for
where is the love that I’m looking for
It’s only love that I’m after
one day at a time
you are all I ever have in mind
