Bread was a popular pop group of the early '70s. Keyboardist/vocalist David
Gates wrote melodic soft rock singles. In 1968, Gates joined a group with
guitarist/vocalist James Griffin and guitarist/vocalist Robb Royer to form
Bread. Their second album, On the Waters, was a hit. Gates is credited with
composing most of the hit songs. As with many groups we have revisited, Bread
disbanded in 1973. They reunited in 1976, releasing Lost Without Your Love but
soon went separate ways. At last word, Gates retired to a California ranch and
Griffin went to Nashville. I liked several of the popular Bread songs and choose
to create novel arrangements of Make It With You It Don't Matter to Me, Baby
I'm-a Want You, Diary, Aubrey, Lost Without Your Love, Guitar Man.
Lyrics to Aubrey
And Aubrey was her name, A not so very ordinary girl or name. But who's to
blame For a love that wouldn't bloom For the hearts that never played in
tune. Like a lovely melody that every-one can sing, Take away the words
that rhyme it doesn't mean a thing. And Aubrey was her name. We tripped the
light and danced to-ge-ther to the moon, But where was June. No it never
came around. If it did it never made a sound, Maybe I was absent or was
listening too fast, Batching all the words, But then the meaning going
past, But god I miss the girl, and I'd go a thousand Times around the
world just to be Closer to her than to me. And Aubrey was her name, I
never new her, but I loved her just the same, I loved her name. Wish that
I had found the way And the reasons that would make her stay. I have
learned to lead a life a-part from all the rest. If I can't have the one I
I'll do with-out the best. But how I miss the girl And I'd go a mil-lion
times around the world Just to say she had been mine for a day.
I found her diary underneath a tree. And started reading about me The
words she's written took me by surprise
You'd never read them in her eyes. They said that she had found the love she
waited for. Wouldn't you know it, she wouldn't show it. When she
confronted with the writing there, Simply pretended not to care. I
passed it off as just in keeping with Her total disconcerting air And
though she tried to hide The love that she denied, Wouldn't you know it,
she wouldn't show it. And as I go through my life, I will give to her my
wife All the sweet things that I can find. I found her diary underneath
a tree. And started reading about me. The words began stick and tears to
flow. Her meaning now was clear to see. The love she'd waited for was
someone else not me Wouldn't you know it, she wouldn't show it. And as I
go through my life, I will wish for her his wife All the sweet things that
she can find All the sweet things they can find
