Barry Ryan - Eloise




Barry Ryan - Eloise 1971

1968 # 1 in many countries

Ev'ry night I'm there, I'm always there,
she knows I'm there
And heaven knows,
I hope she goes

I find it hard to realise that love was in her eyes
It's dying now She knows I'm crying now

And ev'ry night I'm there, I break my heart to please
Eloise, Eloise

You know I'm on my knees, yeah
I said please

You're all I want so hear my prayer, my prayer

My Eloise is like the stars that please the night,
The sun that makes the day, that lights the way
And when that star goes by,
I'll hold it in my hands and cry
Her love is mine,
my sun will shine

Every night I'm there I break my heart to please
Eloise, dee-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee, Eloise

You're all I want you gotta hear my prayer

My Eloise-ah I'd love to please her
I'd love to care, but she's not there
And when I find you, I'd be so kind
You'd want to stay, I know you'd stay

And as the days grow old,
the nights grow cold
I wanna hold her near to me
I know she's dear to me
And only time can tell,
and take away this lonely hell
I'm on my knees to Eloise

And every night I'm there,
I break my heart to please
Eloise, dee-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee, Eloise

You are my life so hear my prayer
You are the prize I know you're there
You're all I want so hear my prayer, yeah yeah
You're all I need and I'm not there
You know I'm not there
No no no no, Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

My Eloise, I got to please her yeah
She knows I love her, love her, love her ..
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

My Eloise, I got her on my knees
 
Barry Ryan (born Barry Sapherson, 24 October 1948, Leeds, Yorkshire) is an English pop singer.

The son of pop singer Marion Ryan and Fred Sapherson, Barry and his twin brother Paul began to perform at the age of fifteen. In 1965 they signed a recording contract with Decca and brought out singles such as "Don't Bring Me Your Heartaches" (1965), "Have Pity on the Boy" (1966), and "Missy Missy" (1966).

When it turned out that Barry's brother, allegedly on the verge of a nervous breakdown, was unable to cope any longer with all the stress connected with show business, the two brothers decided on a new division of labour: Paul would write the songs which Barry would then interpret as a solo artist. Their greatest success as a composer-singer duo, now for MGM Records, was "Eloise" (1968), melodramatic and heavily orchestrated. Later singles included "Love Is Love" (also 1968), "The Hunt" (1969), "Magical Spiel" (1970), and "Kitsch" (1970).
