Our Love Was (Pete Townshend) Towser Tunes, Inc./Fabulous Music Ltd./ABKCO Music, Inc. (BMI)

Recorded at Columbia Studios, Los Angeles, September 1967.

[On the mono version of this LP, this track features a 'slide' guitar solo which was originally recorded as an alternate for the BBC at IBC Studios, London October 10th, 1967. Keith's letters home to his wife Kim show that another version was recorded at Bradley's Barn in Nashville on August 16th, 1967. The guitar solo on this version has been given a hard intro instead of the potted-up version on the original. In the U.S. this track was originally called "Our Love Was, Is."]

Our love was ...

Our love was famine, frustration
We only acted out an imitation
Of what real love should have been
Then suddenly ...

Our love was flying
Our love was soaring
Our love was shining
Like a summer morning

Flying, soaring
Shining morning
Never leaving
Lying, dying

Love love love long
Love love love long
Love love love long
Love love love long

Love love love long
Love love love long
Love love love long
Love love love long

Love love love long
Love love love long
Love love love long
Love love love long

Our love was flying
Our love was soaring
Our love was shining
Like a summer morning

Our love was famine, frustration
We only acted out an imitation
Of what real love should have been
And then suddenly ...

Our love was flying
Our love was soaring
Our love was shining
Like a summer morning
