Casablanca - A Song of Love and Longing

The first time I listened to this song I liked it. The lyrics are written in easy language. The words are not difficult to understand. Yet, it expresses a deep passionate aspect of love. A love that contains harmony, where waiting is as good as listening to ballad or a love song.

"I guess there're many broken hearts in Casablanca
You know I've never really been there. so, I don't know
I guess our love story will never be seen on the big wide silver screen
But it hurt just as bad when I had to watch you go."

This lines of the song have made the sorrow grand and worth living with it. Here sorrow does not sound like misery or agony, sorrow has been transformed to a great cause to grieve for.

N.B. When I listen to this song, Casablanca become a city of romance to me, where I want to travel and want to fall in love and feel like this song forever.

Lyrics of the song:

I fell in love with you watching Casablanca
Back row of the drive in show in the flickering light
Popcorn and cokes beneath the stars became champagne and caviar
Making love on a long hot summers night


I thought you fell in love with me watching Casablance
Holding hands 'neath the paddle fans in Rick's Candle lit cafe
Hiding in the shadows from the spies. Moroccan moonlight in your eyes
Making magic at the movies in my old chevrolet

Oh! A kiss is still a kiss in Casablanca
But a kiss is not a kiss without your sigh
Please come back to me in Casablanca
I love you more and more each day as time goes by

I guess there're many broken hearts in Casablanca
You know I've never really been there. so, I don't know
I guess our love story will never be seen on the big wide silver screen
But it hurt just as bad when I had to watch you go

Oh! A kiss is still a kiss in Casablanca
But a kiss is not a kiss without your sigh
Please come back to me in Casablanca
I love you more and more each day as time goes by
Oh! A kiss is still a kiss in Casablanca
But a kiss is not a kiss without your sigh


Please come back to me in Casablanca
I love you more and more each day as time goes by
I love you more and more each day as time goes by
