Love Will Keep Us Together


Songwriters: Neil Sedaka, Howard Greenfield
Performer: Captain & Tennille
Category: 70s

Though this song was written & recorded in 1973, it wasn't till Captain & Tennille covered in in 1975 that the song took off. In fact, it was Captain & Tennille's first single, and it placed number one for 4 consecutive weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 that year - not a bad feat for a debut single! They even managed to put their Spanish version Por Amor Viviremos on the the same Hot 100 charts in the same year (though at number 49) - a pretty rare occurrence to have the same song in different languages as separate singles placing in the top 100 like that.

It's also been featured various times on the large and small screens - 2001's film Get Over It (starring Kirsten Dunst), Starsky & Hutch, Malcolm in the Middle, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Lost, Arrested Development, and Will & Grace, to name a few.

LYRICS

Love, love will keep us together
Think of me, babe, whenever
Some sweet talkin' girl comes along
Singin' his song, don't mess around
You just got to be strong

Just stop, 'cause I really love you
Stop, I'll be thinking of you
Look in my heart
And let love keep us together

You, you belong to me now
Ain't gonna set you free now
When those girls start
Hanging around, talking me down
Hear with your heart and you won't hear a sound

Just stop, 'cause I really love you
Stop, I'll be thinkin' of you
Look in my heart
And let love keep us together, whatever

Young and beautiful
Someday your looks will be gone
When the others turn you off
Who'll be turnin' you on
I will, I will, I will

I will, be there to share forever
Love will keep us together
I said it before and I'll say it again
While others pretend
I need you now and I need you then

Just stop, 'cause I really love you
Stop, I'll be thinking of you
Look in my heart
And let love keep us together, whatever
I will, I will, I will, I will

You better stop, 'cause I really love you
Stop, I've been thinkin' of you
Look in my heart
And let love keep us together, whatever
I will, I will, I will, I will
