Go Back

Portrait Of My Love

Words & Music by David West, Cyril Orander

Lyrics:

There could never be a portrait of my love
For nobody could paint a dream
You will never see a portrait of my love
For miracles are never seen.

Anyone who sees her, soon forgets the Mona Lisa

It would take I know, a Michaelangelo
And he would need the glow of dawn that paints the sky above
To try and paint a portrait of my love

It would take I know, a Michaelangelo
And he would need the glow of dawn that paints the sky above,
To try and paint a portrait of my love

More info:

Matt Monro had a British hit with "Portrait of my love" in 1960. The writers are British: Cyril Ornadel and Norman Newell (pseudonym David West). Steve Lawrence took the number into the top ten of the American Hot 100 in 1961. A recording of Elvis singing this song and accompanying himself on the piano was made at a backstage rehearsal in Las Vegas.
