Rock Ballad of the Week: Ten “You’re In My Heart”

I’ve come to know the magic in your eyes,
I’ve come to know the way it feels when a love is real,
You taught me not to hide behind disguise
To let my heart reveal in time, the belief inside
That as long as we are together
I’ll be on your side forever
Beside you all the way, to love you come what may
Now until the twelfth of never
You will guide my life’s endeavours
You’re everything I need, you put the strength in me.

You’re in my heart, you’re in my soul,
When we’re apart, it’s strong enough to hold
I never doubt or question why
You are my life, the truth it never lies
This love will never die

To paint with all the colours of your smile
To sail the ocean in your eyes is a paradise
Along the road we chose to walk in time
We’ve created other lives, from yours and mine
Hidden in the way to held you
Hidden in the way we kissed
A spark became an ember that waited to exist
I could never live to tell you
All that I have left to say,
For every moment I’m beside you
Takes my breath away

You’re in my heart, your in my soul
You give me hope and shelter from the cold
For when we laugh and when we cry,
It’s in those eyes, this love will never die

Rock Ballad of the Week: Guffria “Love You Forever”

Searching for the open door, to take us back just like before
It’s not too late, no it’s not too late
What we’ve done, and we’ve been through, says it all, what’s left to prove
You can’t throw away, oh, what’s here to stay

Darling, I love you forever, believe me, I love you forever, forever my love

Today we laugh, tonight we cry, flip the card, and can’t decide
Heads we win, tails we lose
Who’s to say, what’s wrong or right, and through the tears the truth will shine
It’s all I can do, babe I’m gonna stay with you

Darling, I love you forever, believe me, I love you forever
Darling, I love you forever, forever my love


Forever, my love. Forever my love. Forever my love. You’re there in my heart

Darling, I love you forever, believe me, I love you forever, forever my love
Forever. Forever my love, forever my love

Giuffria was an American rock band that was formed in 1983 by Gregg Giuffria after his departure from the band Angel, a glam/hard rock band from Washington, D.C..

Giuffria was formed as Gregg Giuffria‘s side project in 1982 after his departure from Angel. At the onset, Giuffria had intended to forge this project under the ‘Angel’ moniker, until several members of the now-defunct band took suit. The band’s classic line-up consisted of Gregg Giuffria on keyboards, David Glen Eisley (lead vocalist), Craig Goldy(guitar), Chuck Wright (bass), and Alan Krigger (drums). Eisley had recently been vocalist for Los Angeles-based band Sorcery. Goldy had briefly been a member of hard rock/glam metal band Rough Cutt, while Wright had guested on several tracks on Quiet Riot‘s album, Metal Health, although not an official member at the time. Tom Quinton played drums for several months in 1983-84 but was dumped in favor of long time session drummer Alan Krigger, who was deemed to have a better image than Quinton.

Giuffria were signed to MCA Records in 1984. Their debut album Giuffria, soon followed, peaking at No. 26 on the album charts, while spawning two hit singles, “Call to the Heart” (Hot 100 #15) and “Lonely in Love” (Hot 100 #57).
