Charted: 8
  • You are here and warm
    But I could look away and you'd be gone
    Cause we live in a time
    When meaning falls in splinters from our lives
    And that's why I've traveled far
    'Cause I come so together where you are

    And all of the things that I said that I wanted
    Come rushing by in my head when I'm with you
    Fourteen joys and a will to be merry
    And all of the things that we say are very

    Sentimental gentle wind
    Blowing through my life again
    Sentimental lady, gentle one

    (All I need is you)

    Sentimental gentle wind
    Blowing through my life again
    Sentimental lady, gentle one

    Sentimental lady

    Yeah all of the things that I said that I wanted
    Come rushing by in my head when I'm with you
    Fourteen joys and a will to be merry
    And all of the things that we say are very

    Sentimental gentle wind
    Blowing through my life again
    Sentimental lady, gentle one

    (All I need is you)

    Sentimental gentle wind
    Blowing through my life again
    Sentimental lady, gentle one

    (All I need is you)

    All of the things that I said that I wanted
    Come rushing by in my head when I'm with you
    Fourteen joys and a will to be merry
    And all of the things that we say are very (all I need is you)

    All of the things that I said that I wanted
    Come rushing by in my head when I'm with you
    Fourteen joys and a will to be merry
    And all of the things that we say are very Writer/s: ROBERT WELCH

  • Seventhmist from 7th HeavenPerfect song for slow dancing with your loved one.
  • Mark from Colorado Springs, CoLOVE this song...and Bob. Did anyone else get chills at the end of this video...I mean...he shot himself (Though it was with a rifle and in the video he pulls a small toy gun) and just the way he smiled at the end after the "Bang" flag pops out..."Prophetic?"
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn October 9th 1977, "Sentimental Lady" by Bob Welch entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #90; and twelve weeks later on January 1st, 1978 it peaked at #8 {for 2 weeks} and spent 18 weeks on the Top 100...
    Between October 1977 and May 1979, he had, as a solo artist, five Top 100 records; his next biggest hit was "Ebony Eyes", it peaked at #14 {for 2 weeks} on April 2nd, 1978...
    R.I.P. Robert Lawrence Welch {1945 - 2012}.
  • Roann from Apalachin, NyR.I.P. Bob Welch. You will always be Fleetwood Mac.
  • Oldpink from Farmland, InBob Welch took his life yesterday.
    Such a shame.
  • Camille from Toronto, OhThis is one of those songs that reached through all the confusion of being a teenager and simply touched something inside of me, bringing it to life. It transported me out of the life's daily grind and allowed me to dream about love that could do that, too. It spoke to my heart the way only music can do. I didn't know anyone else who listened to this kind of music. It's just a beautifully sung song with lyrics to match.
  • John from L.a., CaBob Welsh is full of it! He did not write this song.

    Novelest Baron Birtcher wrote the song. He sold it when he was very young in exchange for a few hours in a recording studio.
  • Jason from Houston, TxWhat a timeless classic this song is-- one of my favorite songs of the 70s, and maybe of all time... The beginning "You are here and warm..." is chill-inducing, then the chorus-- just spectacular. I first became reacquainted with the song around 2006, when Ask.com used it in one of their commercials-- I recognized it from when I was a little kid in the late 70s, did a little internet searching to find out the title, downloaded it to my iPod and now I listen to it often. It has a similar mood to 10cc's "I'm Not in Love", another favorite of mine.
  • Kristin from Bessemer, AlLOVE that music box intro! YEAHHH!
