alex harvey - to make my life beautiful

Recommended Posts

tried to send this as an email, but it was returned: quota full - or something. I hope this is alright? :(


just revisited your site, and was pleasantly surprised to see the text to 'mama told me not to come' replaced by mine, submitted a couple months ago. I get no credit whatsoever, but who cares...

something else: I think I asked you this before, but I'm not sure:

I miss alex harvey and his song 'to make my life beautiful'. some may say it's sentimental slop, but I just LOVE it. good vibes and memories and all that.

I have for you a truncated text unfit to publish, but it's a start, isn't it?

here goes:


alex harvey - to make my life beautiful

the dawn ... reach cross the pillow

where the face of an angel

lies cradled in a nest of tangled hair

and the smile of contentment

on your face while you've been sleeping

keeps me going makes me know just why I'm here

and I don't believe you'll ever find

the thought will ever cross my mind to leave

I'd die from loneliness

I need your onliness

a place for my soul to rest

yes I need your love

to make my life beautiful

the alarm clock rings at seven

and I feel her/you stir beside me

I hear your gentle footsteps on the floor

I raise up from my pillow

just in time to catch a small glimpse

of a housecoat swishing through the kitchen door

and I don't believe you'll ever find (etc)

I watch my shavin' raises (?)

... smoothly on the face

of a happy man who loves to live at home

and the sweetest voice I ever heard

is calling me to breakfast

I don't know how I made it on my own

and I don't believe... etc.


... and I still am mighty glad I discovered your site!

regards, cris lelystad netherlands

This is the first time I read about other versions. I only knew/know Three Dog Night, and I can't imagine Tom Jones did a better job... TDN rules! btw: I found a couple of errors in the text posted here. Could it be that the bit about "a hostess not lastin'" comes from another version? Once again, I prefer the girlfriend passed out on the floor!

Um, you are credited for this... ::

Not sure if I am correctly interpreting you post though! All comments posted go through the panel of experts first and are then added as a legit Songfact, or a comment. So everyone who submits using the name they want it credited to will see their comment and their chosen details.

Lots of folks have been getting the full quota message, Carl is one popular guy!

This site is a wealth of knowledge, glad you stumbled upon it too! :thumbsup: Make yourself at home and watch out for jr, he bites. Hard! ::
