The song in at number six is this year’s only offering from Alfie’s last album, Serenata; in 2015 My Heart is Yours entered the top ten at number seven. The music is from the film, Il Postino and it is the only song for which Alfie himself wrote the lyrics. Can we say it’s great to see an original song make the list? A semi original song as the film version is instrumental. The video is from the first night of the Serenata tour, thanks to Linda W for sharing:
Alfie says the inspiration behind the lyrics is his daughter, Grace, and since I heard this, I always think of my son when I hear this song. Having said that, the lyrics are also incredibly romantic and I’m sure there are a fair few ladies out there who imagine these words being sung to them. Wouldn’t this be a lovely wedding song?

Lovely- lovely. Especially singing to his daughter.
Another not favourite but a worthy no 6.
