Steve Winwood - Valerie

So wild, standing there, with her hands in her hair
I can't help remember just where she touched me
There's still no face here in her place
So cool, she was like jazz on a summer's day
Music, high and sweet, then she just blew away
No she can't be that warm with the wind in her arms

Valerie, call on me-call on me, Valerie
Come and see me-I'm the same boy I used to be

Love songs fill the night, but they don't tell it all
Not how lovers cry out just like they're dying
Her cries hang there in time somewhere
Someday, some good wind may blow her back to me
Some night I may hear her like she used to be
No it can't be that warm with the wind in her arms

So cool, she was like jazz on a summer's day
Music, high and sweet, then she just blew away
No she can't be that warm with the wind in her arms

Chorus

This is the 1987 Tom Lord-Alge redux. This page DID have the original 1982 version, but it changed (see the HQ Youtube video for the original). "Valerie" is a song written by Steve Winwood and Will Jennings and originally recorded by Winwood for his third solo album Talking Back to the Night, in 1982. The song deals with a man reminiscing about a lost love he hopes to find again someday. On its original release, the single reached #51 on the UK Singles Chart and #70 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. In 1987, a remix by Tom Lord-Alge was included on Winwood's compilation album Chronicles. The remixed version of "Valerie" was released as a single and climbed to #9 in the US in late December 1987, and also reached #19 in the UK. Eric Prydz sampled the song in 2004 for a house music track and presented it to Winwood. Winwood was so impressed with what Prydz had done, he re-recorded the vocals to fit the track better. The 2004 remix was released under the title "Call on Me".
