Rock Ballad of The Week: Bread “Make It With You”

30 Comments

Hey have you ever tried
Really reaching out for the other side?
I may be climbing on rainbows
But baby, here goes

Dreams are for those who sleep
Life is for us to keep
And if you’re wondering what this song is leading to,
I want to make it with you

I really think that we could make it, girl

Though you don’t know me well
And every little thing only time will tell
If you believe the things that I do,
And we’ll see it through

Life can be short or long
Love can be right or wrong
And if I chose the one I’d like to help me through
I’d like to make it with you

I really think that we could make it, girl

Baby you know that dreams there for those who sleep
Life is for us to keep
And if I chose the one I’d like to help me through
I’d like to make it with you

I really think that we could make it, girl

Make It with You” is a song written by David Gates and originally recorded by the poprock group Bread, of which Gates was a member. The song was a #1 hit.

The song first appeared on Bread’s 1970 album, On the Waters. Released as a single that June, it was the group’s first top-ten hit on theΒ Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and spent the week of August 22, 1970, at number one, their only single to do so; it also reached #5 on the UK Singles Chart. Billboard ranked “Make It with You” as the #13 song of 1970,[1] and it was certified gold by the RIAA for sales of over one million copies.

When the song was released, David Gates’s mother was asked by a local interviewer how her son’s music career was going. Misunderstanding the song’s title, she replied that his group had just recorded a song called “Naked with You.”

  1. That song reminds me of a time in my life almost a year ago. Even though “dreams are for those who sleep” that song made me dream. So beautiful, Sylvester 😊

  2. That song’s a year older than me but has aged better LOL

  3. Oh wow, here’s an oldie but a goodie! I don’t think I’ve had this song in my mind for years.
