I Write The Songs #123 Lionel Richie

by | Jul 20, 2017

I Write The Songs #123 Lionel Richie is our songwriter of the week.

Thanks for the times that you’ve given me
The memories are all in mind
And now that we’ve come
To the end of our rainbow
There’s something I must say out loud!

Lionel Richie
