Radio 58, side A, track 7: “How Can We Be Lovers” by Michael Bolton

Michael Bolton - How Can We Be LoversOh, Michael Bolton, I don’t have much to say about this song other than that we need more songs like this in our lives.  Not necessarily the sentiments in it, since songs about relationships that aren’t working are a dime a dozen (and that’s counting inflation!).  We just need more songs by you or someone who sounds exactly like you.  My god, man, can you sing!  Between that amazing hair and that stupendous voice, you’re like a magnificent pop lion, your bellowing roar echoing all across your kingdom, the Lion King of the radio, if you will.  Hopefully you won’t be trampled by a stampeding herd of wildebeests any time soon.  You don’t happen to have a strangely fey, effeminate brother with an English accent, do you?

“How Can We Be Lovers”

How can we be lovers if we can’t be friends

How can we start over when the fighting never ends, baby, how can we make love if we can’t
Make amends

How can we be lovers if we can’t be
Can’t be frieeeends

Look at us now
Look at us, baby
Still tryin’ to work it out
Never get it right

We must be fools
We must be crazy

Whooa whooa
There’s no comunication
Whooa whooa
It’s a no-win situation

How can we be lovers if we can’t be friends

How can we start over when the fighting never ends, baby, how can we make love if we can’t
Make amends

Tell me, how can we be lovers if we can’t be
Can’t be frieeeends

We lie awake
This wall between us
We just not talkin’, we got
So much to saaay

Let’s break these chains
Our love can free us
Whooa whooa
Ain’t it time we started tryin’
Whooa whooa
Gotta stop this love from dyin’

How can we be lovers if we can’t be friends

How can we start over when the fighting never ends, baby, how can we make love if we can’t
Make amends

How can we be lovers if we can’t be
Can’t be frieeeends

<awesome Michael Bolton jam>

(Baby) baaaaaaby
(Love is tough but we can taaake it) how can we be loveeeers

Baaaby
Times are rough but we can maaaake it

We can work it out

How can we be lovers if we can’t be friends

How can we start over when the fightin’ never ends, baby, how can we make love if we can’t
Make amends

Tell me, how can we be lovers if we can’t be
Can’t be frieeeends
(How can we be lovers if we can’t be friends) how can we be looovers
(How can we start over when the fighting never ends, baby) how can we be loveeeers
(How can we make love if we can’t)
(Make amends)
