My Sunday Song – “Love Is On the Way” by Saigon Kick

For My Sunday Song #93 we are keeping the power ballad streak alive.  I bring you the song “Love Is On The Way” by Saigon Kick.  The song was off their 1992 album ‘The Lizard’ and garnered the band their one and only hit which reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100.  I guess you could say they were a One-Hit Wonder.

The song wasn’t even really a single.  A couple radio stations in Florida picked it up and the song started to gain some traction.  Before they knew it, they had a huge hit on their hand.  I love to see songs that become popular through word-of-mouth and not being driving down your throat by the record company.

The song seems to be about the here & now.  Two people together at this point in time and going for it, living in the moment before it disappears.  At least that is what I get from the lyrics.  The song is done as purely an acoustic song.  The only drums are the tympani drums and not a full drum kit.  It is very simple in it’s content, but it is able to pull you in and you got lost in the song.  Matt Kramer’s vocals are the power behind the song along with Jason Bieler’s guitar strumming.  It was all magical.

Love_Is_on_the_Way

Now after the song became a big hit, Matt Kramer and Tom Defile (bassist) weren’t real keen on the new direction of the band as this wasn’t the typical song for the band.  They both left before the next album was finished and Jason took over vocals for the band.  The band did reunite briefly in the late 90’s and in 2012, the band reunited (well Matt & Jason in particular) and are still going strong today.

Now sit back and click the song below and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.  Have a Happy Sunday!!

“Love Is On The Way”

Lonely sidewalks
Silent night
Bring the evenin’
Deep inside
Hold me darling
Touch me now
Let the feelings
Free tonight

Love is on the way
I can see it in your eyes
Let’s give it one more try tonight baby
Love is on the way
I can see it in your eyes
Let’s give it one more try tonight

Time of season
Wipes the tears
No rhyme or reason
No more fears
All the dreamin’
Is far behind
You are here now
Everything’s alright

Love is on the way
I can see it in your eyes
Let’s give it one more try tonight baby
Love is on the way
I can see it in your eyes
Let’s give it one more try tonight

And in the morning
I’ll be gone away
All the things are left behind
If you need me
I’ll come night and day
Let’s stop the hands of time

Love is on the way
I can see it in your eyes
Let’s give it one more try tonight baby
Love is on the way
I can see it in your eyes
Let’s give it one more try tonight baby

Love is on the way
I can see it in your eyes
Let’s give it one more try tonight baby
Love is on the way
I can see it in your eyes
Let’s give it one more try tonight
