Radio XI, side A, track 11: “You Came” by Kim Wilde

Oh, Kim Wilde. . .oh my darling Kim Wilde.  From the moment I heard this song I was in love.  I was enchanted.  I loved your voice and I loooooved this song.  It was so sweet and romantic and your voice was so angelic, it was like it was being sung in some magical fairyland and I pictured a magical willow tree engulfed in soft lights with little dandelion seeds floating in the air all around as you spun around in a white dress and professed your love and gratitude to someone who was obviously the luckiest person in the world to be on the receiving end of such beautiful music.  I could only dream that I would be able to make someone as happy as that lucky person had made you.  Oh, Kim Wilde, I’d write more, but I need to listen to this song again. . .

“You Came”

Someone I know is staring at me

And when I look into her eyes

I see a girl that I used to be
I hardly recognize

‘Cause in the space of a year
I’ve watched the old me disappear
All of the things I once held
Precious just don’t
Mean anything anymore ’cause suddenly
You came
And changed the way I feel
No one could love you more, because you came
And turned my life around
No one could take your place

I’ve never felt good with permanent things
Now I don’t want anything ta change
You can’t imagine the joy you bring
My life won’t be the same

And I’ll be there when you call
I’ll pick you up if you should fall
‘Cause I have never felt such
Inspiration
Nobody else ever gave me more because
You came
And changed the way I feel
No one could love you more, because you came
And turned my life around
No one could take your place
You came

You came
And turned my life around
No one could take your place

I watch you sleep in the still of the night

You look so pretty when you dream

So many people just go through life
Holding back, they don’t
Say what they mean

But it’s easy for me

Since you came
No one could love you more, because you came
And turned my life around
No one could take your place
You came
And changed the way I feel
No one could love you more, because you came
And turned my life around
No one could take your place
You came

You came

You came
And changed the way I feel

You came
And turned my life around

You came
And changed the way I feel
No one could love you more, because you came
And turned my life around
No one could take your place
You came
