"Dee's lyrics for Petula's music fit like a glove. They are so artistically attuned to each other that you feel a mutual lyricism and dramatic sense coming through each song." 

- Paul Bateman

The Face Of Love
(Dee Shipman / Petula Clark)

I have seen the face of love
Shining through my dreams every night
Warmer than the sun
Young as days begun
When all the world is morning light

I believed the face of love
Was a man my life would reveal
Someone tall and strong
Then you came along
And you weren't him
But you were real

Where do they go?
Those dreams of love
And lost untroubled days
Caught in a haze
Till they're erased 
Within time's net
Of bitter-sweet 
Sweet.........
Regret

You are not the face of love
Yet you'll be my love evermore
Age has subtle charms
And in older arms
Then once I dreamed
I'm now secure………..

Where do they go?
Those dreams of love
And lost untroubled days
Caught in a haze
Till they're erased 
Within time's net
Of bitter-sweet 
Sweet.........
Regret

You are not the face of love
Yet you'll be my love evermore
Age has subtle charms
And in older arms
Then once I dreamed
I'm now secure

And I see the face of love 
Shining through your eyes every night
Warmer than a sun
Young as days begun
When all the world is morning light..............
