Song facts

I Am Your Singer” is a song from Wings’ debut album, “Wild Life“, released in 1971.

On things like ‘I Am Your Singer’ – and, well all of them – I really love Linda’s voice. I think it’s very distinctive and she sings well. I’m sort of listening for it being what the critics said – you know, ‘Oh, she’s not very good’. But her tone is great.

Lyrics

You are my love,
You are my song, linger on,
You are my song,
I am your singer.

You are my one,
You are my own melody,
You are my song,
I am your singer.

Someday when we're singing
We will fly away,
Going winging.

Sing, singing my love song to you.

My song is sung,
When day is done harmonies will linger on,
I am your singer,
I am your singer,
Singing my love song to you.
