Don Williams’ “Desperately”: Utmost But Not Hopeless Affection 1

The song “Desperately” by Don Williams defines the complete feeling of love but not the hopeless affection. It’s simply a mixture of someone’s sense of excitement towards the one in his heart as well as the thoughts of idleness for it has no assurance of reciprocation.

We are going through rough times. There are days we feel exhausted, and sometimes we need to unwind. And if you think you’re already sinking, then it’s good to go back a little. Don Williams’ “Desperately” will help you unbend.

The track rocked the airwaves in 1988. “Desperately” maintained Williams’ style of music as well as its full and smooth melody. Also, the sound preserved the mixture of little rocking, moving, and grooving.

The Song’s Facts…

Furthermore, “Desperately” is a song written by Jamie O’Hara and Kevin Welch. It was one of the “Gentle Giant” Don Williams’ signature song. Also, it was released in August 1988 as the third single from the album “Traces”. The song reached No.7 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

It only reached No.7 but no doubt that it was embraced by millions of people all over the globe. The song had a close fight with some of the most significant artist and their songs. These were “Darlene” by T. Graham Brown at No.1, “Summer Wind” by the Desert Rose Band at No.2, “Runaway Train” by Rossane Cash at No.3, and “New Shade Of Blue” by Southern Pacific at No.4. It also included “Blue To The Bone” by Sweethearts of the Rodeo at No.5 and “What Do You Want From Me This Time” by Foster & Lloyd.

The Lyrics…

My heart is out of control, and this ole love-struck soul

Just lives for the moment you’re around

When I hold on to you

It is all I can do, just to keep my feet on the ground

Desperately loving you desperately

When you’re not here with me, I get a little bit crazy

Constantly I think about you constantly

Look at what you’ve done to me

I’m just like a little baby, Oh I love you desperately

Will I laugh will I cry, I live will I die

It all depends upon you

And it is dangerous I know

To be lost in you so

But I am and there’s nothing I can do

Desperately loving you desperately, when you’re not here with me

I get a little bit crazy

Constantly I think about you constantly

Look at what you’ve done to me

I’m just like a little baby, Oh I love you desperately

Desperately loving you desperately

When you’re not here with me

I get a little bit crazy, constantly I think about you constantly

Look at what you’ve done to me

I’m just like a little baby

Oh I love you desperately
