YOUR LOVE IS ALL AROUND ME

Home demo version 1


Doo. Da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da

I wake up in the morning and your pictures there
The closet's filled baby with the clothes you used to wear
I smile... I still got that ring baby on my finger
Although you're gone away your memory lingers, and 'cause

Your love is all around me now
Your love is all around me now
Your love is all around me now
Around me now, around me now

Baby baby when you went away
I tried but I couldn't throw these things away
The color of your face, the smell of your hair
I turn over at night and though there is no one there, baby

Your love is all around me now, tonight
Your love is all around me now
Your love is all around me now
Around me now, surrounds me now

Maybe some make it round the race, la la la la la la
Surrounding them, well they, hold on tonight, we're going tonight, we're going tonight

[Spoken:] One more time

Well I'm going where it's alright, that love is gone, that love will last, it's in everything you do
Now they, know love is gone, our love is da, our la da da

Now friends tell me where you, you ran away
But they don't have to walk in my shoes everyday, every night
If it's wrong or right baby I don't know
But I know I'd rather live like this than let it all go, ‘cause

Your love is all around me now
The love we had is gone but I still feel it
Your love is all around me now
Around me now, around me now
Your love is all around me now
Your love is all around me now
Your love is all around me now
Around me now, around me now
Around me now, around me now
Around me now, around me now
Around me now, baby I can feel it all around me
Baby I can feel the love, the love we had surrounding me
I want to hold my baby real hard, want to hold her around me
I can feel your love surround, surrounding around me
Surround me now, surround me now
Oh somebody turn out the light on me now
Oh somebody turn out the light on me now
Oh somebody turn out the light on me now
Oh lady let this darkness come in
Oh baby let the, let the night fall around
Oh let the darkness fall on me now
Your loves all around me now
Your loves all around me now
Well, your love's around me now
Your loves all around me now
Around me now, oh let around me now
Loves all around me now
Loves all around me now
Around me now, around me now, alright

Circulating Versions

Three takes of YOUR LOVE IS ALL AROUND ME are in circulation among collectors. They all are acoustic home demos recorded at Springsteen's home in Colts Neck, NJ, sometime between January and April 1982. They may have even been recorded on the same day.

Two band rehearsal takes of YOUR LOVE IS ALL AROUND ME recorded in April 1982 at Springsteen's home studio in Colts Neck, NJ, are in very limited circulation. According to Brucebase Brucebase, the song was still in the early stages of development. The first take is just the opening and first verse and the second take is most of the song, although the majority of lyrics are unclear.

In his 2012 book E Street Shuffle: The Glory Days Of Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Clinton Heylin reveals that a two-inch tape of YOUR LOVE IS ALL AROUND ME appears on Sony's database of Bruce Springsteen's recording sessions. The tape is undated, but is on the same reel as WAGES OF SIN, so probably it was recorded on the same day, on 10 May 1982 at The Power Station in New York City, NY. This studio version YOUR LOVE IS ALL AROUND ME has not surfaced among collectors.
