Radio 57, side B, track 2: “Whole Wide World” by A’me Lorain

Ame Lorain - Whole Wide WorldOh, A’me Lorain, I know this is unbelievably anal retentive of me, but I really wish I would have kept track of how many times I listened to each song on my tapes.  Because I haven’t heard this song since high school, haven’t even really THOUGHT about this song since high school, and yet I knew every single lyric, the melody, the whistling, all of it, so clearly I listened to this song all the damn time, but I don’t really have any other memories of this song other than thinking that you sounded cute as hell, and that hasn’t changed.  So now, thanks to the magic of the internet, I get to tell the whole wide world about my love for this song.  Now whistle.

“Whole Wide World”

<awesome A’me Lorain jam>

I always love a little mystery
But now the tension’s killing me

No place left for words to hide

I never thought it could be quite so tough
Lips once sealed are splitting up

There ain’t no secrets to outshine
Father Time

Whispers in the dark don’t do
Let’s hit the lights (let’s hit the lights)
Now I just got to spread the news
(So whattaya tellin’ me whattaya tellin’ me whattaya tellin’ me whattaya tellin’ me)
I wanna tell the whole wide world aboutchoo

I don’t have any ifs (oh no)
I am positive

I wanna tell the whole wide world aboutchoo (wanna tell the whole wide world)
We’re never gonna be alone (our love)
Our love is stone
Hey!
Too many words’a too much a crowd
I wanna spill ’em or they’ll leak out

I’m so glad to get the chance (woo!)

I kept it secret ’til I knew for sure
So not to pick my heart off the floor

Now it’s time to take a stand
Heart in hand

Whispers in the dark don’t do
Let’s hit the lights (let’s hit the lights)
Now I just got to spread the news
(So whattaya tellin’ me whattaya tellin’ me whattaya tellin’ me whattaya tellin’ me)
I wanna tell the whole wide world aboutchoo (I wanna tell the whole world)
When I drop a tear (oh yeah)
You are always here
I wanna tell the whole wide world aboutchoo (wanna tell the whooole wide world)
I’m lookin’ at a living dream (don’t wake)
Don’t wake me up
Hey!

Don’t stop
Love me ’til you drop

It’s all right (with me)

One sharp
Arrow through the heart

It’s all right

It’s all riiight

Now whistle

<awesome A’me Lorain whistling>

I’m gonna tell the whole wide world

I will never give you up

I’m gonna tell the whole wide world

You’re my one and only love
Huh huuuh

Whispers in the dark don’t do
Let’s hit the lights (let’s hit the lights)
I just got to spread the news
(So whattaya tellin’ me whattaya tellin’ me whattaya tellin’ me whattaya tellin’ me what are ya tellin’ me now)

I wanna tell the whole wide world aboutchoo (I wanna tell the whole world)

I wanna tell everybody

You’re my cup of tea

I wanna tell the whole wide world aboutchoo (I want to tell the whole wide wooorld)
Your love never shakes (oh yeah)
Ya don’t alternate (oh yeah)
(Oh yeah)
I wanna tell the whole wide world aboutchoo (wanna tell the whole world about my love)
Smoke gets in my eyes

I don’t see other guys

I wanna tell the whole wide world aboutchoo (I won’t give you up)

Our love will never tumble down
It’s built on solid ground
