YOU ONCE TOLD ME
Lyrics
YOU ONCE TOLD ME

I hadn?t even met you in person that is, but
I knew you were touching my soul
Somehow I knew you knew, my heart was yours to take
You swept me off my feet, then you let go
Why did you let go?

You once told me that you loved me
I even heard you say you cared
But, I?ve buried those moments, deep in the past
Way back when, when I thought they?d last
Who knew, it all happened so fast

You once told me I could trust you
And I believed your every word
One day I woke up and you had taken me away
How I remember that rainy day, when I fell
More than I could say

There?s no mistaking love and all its splendor
It?s a miracle just like the morning dew
It may just touch you only once, in a life-time
And, that?s only for the lucky and the few

I once told you that I loved you
The only difference was, I did
I will never let this happen again
It?s so painful when it ends
My love will I ever let you go?

There?s no mistaking love and all its splendor
It?s a miracle just like the morning dew
It may just touch you only once, in a life-time
And, that?s only for those lucky and the few

You once told me you?d love me forever
But, I?m not among those lucky few
To this day I just can?t seem to let you go
Will it ever happen, who knows?
My love, I?m still missing you so, I?ll always love you so
You once told me, you'd never let me go
