Oh my love my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow to the sea to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh wait for me wait for me
I'll be coming home wait for me

Oh my love my darling
I've hungered hungered for your touch
A long lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

    There is no other song that completely captures, with every word, the angst & despair of the loneliness and heart ache that these 8 month military deployments leave me hanging
    onto. And yes, this time does go by ever so slowly. God speed your love, and come home safely to all our deployed troops. We miss you here at home.

    The song is really a wish that one partner either dead or alive is singing to their deceased loved one they miss them and want to be with them again "ive hungered for your touch a long lonely time" they hope they haven't moved on or forgot that the partner still loved them
    "are you still mine? " they long to be reunited "i need your love, i really need your love" this is the partner pleading to be reunited and finally them wishing a swift and untimely death so they may once again be reunited with their loved one in heaven "godspeed your love to me" by this he means bring me to you sooner than i would have... I however do not believe in god so this part of the song is dumb to me but it is still a beautiful song and any person who misses a deceased or living partner whose away could interpret the meaning to their feelings =)

    Absolutely blown away by this song! I usually don't listen to "oldies" music, as I usually listen to music from the 70s to 90s (60s it a bit too old for my music taste), but this right here is a real song! Nobody can write a song today that could be anywhere near as good and meaningful as this!

    Yep....."Unchained Melody".....one of my favorites/& all time favorite. I remember this song well when this 1st came out......no. #1 for many weeks. This song I & many military servicemen enjoyed during the Korean Conflict & Vietnam loved so much........just a great song.
