"I've played music on the radio by many great songwriters, but I can think of no finer lyric writer than Dee Shipman. She has a great way with words, and a highly creative mind!"  

- David Hamilton

  "Roger was Dame Vera Lynn's Musical Director and Accompanist on her TV shows every week. And one day he asked me if we could write a song specially for her. So I thought about what she represented to people, specially those of a certain age, who remembered the war years, and how her voice had been the sound of home and hope to millions through the darkest times. And I thought about all the years that had passed since then, and how, even when hers was no longer fashionable music, somehow she was so beloved by her faithful public, and she felt such a kinship with them, that if she was now going to record something new, it would have to embody all this - which meant that it would have to indeed be a very special song........!

Very Special Song
(Dee Shipman / Roger Webb)

You are always just a song away
Music brought us close
When skies were grey
Songs are like the many memories we share
I recall that through it all
You were always there

We were friends so many years ago
We smiled
And never let the heartaches show
We made it through the bad times
You and I
But friendships last
Though years go by

I want to sing
A very special song for you
A special song to say
That you will always be
A special part of me
From the very start
You were in my heart

Let me sing
A very special song
That's just for you
No matter what the years ahead may bring
I promise that as long as I can sing

Wherever I may go
Whatever I may do
Until the time
That time itself is through
I will sing
A very special song for you

Let me sing
A very special song
That's just for you
No matter what the years ahead may bring
I promise that as long as I can sing

Wherever I may go
Whatever I may do
Until the time
That time itself is through
I will sing
A very special song for you
