Love is Transferred

from by Elegant Simplicity



A mid tempo rock song with a quirky chorus about the confusion of love: yes, the dreaded four letter word itself! Lovely guitar melody and the end section featuring Native American Flutes (played by Allen Bruce Ray) is simply beautiful.

The original version (discounting Ken's demo) featured a female vocalist but it just didn't sit right with the full on band production. However, the vocals were used on an alternative version of the song - a prog rock bossa nova, no less! - that is simply drop dead gorgeous. Look out for it as a B-Side on a single.


Don't know what to believe any more
You've told me so many lies
In your arms I felt the truth
In your arms there's no disguise

The time we spent together
The days we shared in the sun
Holding hands against the world
Not afraid of anyone

And now you tell me it's over
But can't tell me why
Love is transferred, you say
Love never dies

And now you tell me it's over
But can't tell me why
Love is transferred, you say
Love never dies
Love is transferred, you say
Love never dies

How I miss your smile, your touch
The way you held me when the world was cruel
And here you are beating up my heart
And leaving it in the cold


Is this what it has come to
My sweet, sweet soul-mate?
Fighting in the streets
Over the love we had made

The pain will always be with me
For years and years to come
Truly, my love, you were the only one
