We May Never Pass This Way Again

Album: Diamond Girl (1973)
Charted: 21
  • This song calls on people to show courage and continue to stand with one another, partly because they may never see each other again. Written by the duo, it's an example of their strong convictions to Abdul Baha and the Baha'i faith. They made a pilgrimage to Haifa, Israel, where they studied the teachings of the faith, and often based their lyrics on themes of compassion and devotion. >>

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn November 16th 1973, Seals and Crofts performed "We May Never Pass This Way (Again)" on the syndicated television program 'Don Kirshner's Rock Concert'...
    At the time the song was at #21 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; and that was its peak position on the chart {for 1 week}, it spent a total of 12 weeks on the Top 100...
    And on Nov. 4th, 1973 reached #2 {for 1 week} on Billboard's Adult Contemporary Tracks chart {the week it was at #2, the #1 record was "The Most Beautiful Girl" by Charlie Rich}...
    Between September 1972 and September 1978 the duo had twelve Top 100 records; three made the Top 10 and all three peaked at #6, "Summer Breeze" for 2 weeks in 1972, "Diamond Girl" for 2 weeks in 1973, and "Get Closer"* for 2 weeks in 1976...
    * The 45 RPM record label read "Get Closer (featuring Carolyn Willis)."
  • Camille from Toronto, OhI think the title/chorus of the song may have been gleaned from the popular quote: I shall pass through this life but once. Any good therefore that I can do, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it. For I shall never pass this way again. ~Etienne de Grellet. The song has a beautiful, timeless message. There should be a few more 'song facts' up there detailing more about this tune.
  • Lou from Oak Ridge, NjThis song reminds me of a time back in 1975 that I spent with a very special person. When I hear it now I stop close my eyes and remember. It was a beautiful time to be young and falling in love with a beautiful girl, it's a beautiful song.
  • Mar from Houston , TxI love this band and song...
    Its very mellow sound....This band music..
    is the kind of music ...that if you wanted to be alone and think ...it puts you in the mood
