Love That Never Dies      (Roger McGuinn/Stan Lynch)

Something happens to me every time that we touch
Sometimes I'm worried cause I think I might love you too much
Yeah I know what your Mama says and maybe she's right
But can't you feel what my meart is saying tonight

For a woman like you life's an opening door
You're the beautiful girl that we're all looking for
Yeah you can have anything, anything that you want
But baby what we've already got can never be bought

If your love is a timeless flight
Well you know that's alright
Cause we're gonna take our time loving tonight

I'm gonna hold you right here in my arms
as the limousine takes us away
And we'll dream about the music of some brighter day
Throw a dime to the tambourine man
and kiss all the horses goodbye
And believe in the spirit of a love that never dies

The Byrds   "Boxed Set"  
Columbia Records 1990

McGuinn tells the story:
Sony Music said "Well, would you guys be willing to do some new tracks?",
so we went to Nashville and Crosby and Hillman were there, and we did a
couple of songs together, then it was time to do my song, that
Stan Lynch and I had written together called "Love That Never Dies"
right? So Crosby and Hillman bug out. They said "Well you guys can
handle it." [laughter]
So Stan Lynch, John Jorgenson and myself were the Byrds for that song.
There are no other Byrds on that song.
