It’s Really You

“It’s Really You” – It’s easy to figure out how this song came to Karen. The song was part of the A&M Records catalog of which Karen had complete access during her solo album sessions. “It’s Really You” was written by Alan Tarney, Tom Snow and Trevor Spencer and was originally recorded by The Tarney/Spencer Band for their 1976 A&M Records album “Three’s A Crowd.” The song was released as a single by The T/S Band and it was a moderate hit reaching #86 on Billboard’s US Singles chart. This makes one wonder if there were other songs from the same album that Karen may have considered recording.

Lyrics
It’s Really You

Did you ever have a plan, dream
And think it would be right for you

For a moment in your life, believe
Heaven would decide for you

That a feeling deep inside will guide you

To a love you’ll treasure it’s you and I forever
If you will believe

It’s really you, It’s really me,
We’re all the things we ever wanted to be
The time is right and you’re here tonight
So hold my hand and know that you’ll understand

If there is something on your mind, a need
And you feel you want to shake it

Let it go let it fall, leave it
You don’t have to chase it

‘Cos there’s a new world all around you that’s so good
Darling and it’s made for you ther’s nothing more you need to do
If you would believe

It’s really you, It’s really me,
We’re all the things we ever wanted to be
The time is right and you’re here tonight
So hold my hand and know that you’ll understand

Our love, love that I’ve tasted
Now there is love and I aint gonna waste it
Like I did before
Now I know it’s really you it’s me

It’s really you it’s me

It’s really you it’s me

It’s really you
Ah you
