Once I Loved lyrics

Once i loved . . .
And i gave so much love to this love
It was the world to me!

Once i cried . . .
At the thought i was foolish an' proud
And let you say goodbye!

Then, one day . . .
From my infinite sadness you came
And brought me love again!

Now i know . . .
That no matter whatever befalls
I'll never let you go!

I will hold you close . . . make you stay
Because love is the saddest thing
When it goes away . . .

. . . love is the saddest thing
When it goes away . . .

< instrumental break >

I will hold you close . . . make you stay
Because love is the saddest thing
When it goes away . . .

. . . love is the saddest thing
When it goes away . . .

. . . when it goes away . . .
