Trying to get the Feeling Again - David Pomeranz

This is a Barry Manilow orginal song, I guess. I heard this from one of his albums but David Pomeranz sang this when he had a concert here in our city (Dagupan City) maybe in 2000 or 2001. It was my birthday when we watched his concert.

This song particularly caught my attention because it is the main reason why I claim to myself that love is like a flower which needs nourishment everyday. I thought back then that as long as you say "I Love You" to the one you love, everyday, nothing would go wrong. But something still has to go wrong because uttering those words, even with strong conviction and sincerity is not a guarantee for a relationship to last or for the two of you to last forever.

The song talks about a long distance relationship or at least the couple got separated for relatively a long time. One of the factors that could halt a relationship is the distance. It is like a plant taken away from sunlight for a few days. It will wither.

Too sad relationships has to last because of distance. Now what happens when one has to work abroad for the benefit of the family? It is just sad and sickening!

I have been there and I don't want to go back to that point again. I hope it won't happen again... I hope it stops! The good thing though is one's desire to try and get that feeling again... albeit too late I guess!

Here it is:
Doctor, my woman is comin' back home late today
Could you maybe give me somethin' ?
'cause the feeling is gone and I must get it back right away
Before she sees that

I've been up, down, tryin' to get the feeling again
All around, tryin' to get the feeling again
The one that made me shiver
Made my knees start to quiver
Every time she walked in

And I've looked high (high), low (low)
Everywhere I possibly can (high)
But there's no (no) tryin' to get the feelin' again
It seemed to disappear as fast as it came

Where did it run to? I thought I'd done all that I could
Just to keep the love light burnin'
But whatever I've done, guess I just haven't done it too good
'cause all that's left is THE YEARNIN'

I've been up, down, tryin' to get the feelin' again
All around, tryin' to get the feelin' again
The one that made me shiver, made my knees start to quiver
Every time she walked in

And I've looked high (high) and low (low)
And everywhere I possibly can (high)
But there's no (no) tryin' to get the feelin' again
It seemed to disappear as fast as it came

And I've been lookin', I've been lookin', I've been lookin'

I've been up (up), I've been down (down), and tryin' to get the feelin'
I've been up (up), I've been down (down), I've been tryin' to get
I've tried and I've tried and I've tried to get (up) the feelin' (down)
I've been trying to get the feelin' again
I wanna get that feelin'
I want to get that feelin'
I've got to get that feelin'
I've gotta get that feelin' again (up)
And again (down) and again (tryin' to get that feelin')
Tryin' to get (up) the feelin' (down)
I've been tryin' to get the feelin' again
