THERE WAS YOU

MUSIC AND LYRICS

HEARTBREAK CAME SO EASY TO ONE SO YOUNG
LOVE HAD TURNED QUITE CONTRARY
TO A YOUNG GIRL’S DREAMS
SO I GATHERED UP WHAT WAS LEFT
AND MOVED WARILY ON
A CHANGE OF SCENE
A CHANGE OF DREAM

A NEW START TO A NEW LIFE WAS ALL I ASKED
LOVE WOULD BE QUITE SUSPENDED
IN THIS YOUNG GIRL’S LIFE
BUT THE WORLD DOES NOT ALWAYS WORK
IN ALL THE WAYS THAT WE WANT
TOO SOON WE MET
TOO SOON TOO SOON

I SHOOK YOUR HAND
I CAUGHT YOUR SMILE
THE VOICE INSIDE ME SCREAMED “NO, NO!”
WHILE MY HEART DANCED IN MIDAIR
I BARRED THE DOOR
REFUSED TO LOOK
I KNEW I DIDN’T DARE
I SEARCHED THE FLOOR FOR ANSWERS
AND I FOUND YOU STANDING THERE
SO THERE WAS YOU
THERE YOU WERE
THERE ON THAT SUNDAY AFTERNOON

BUT LOVE WAS STILL TOO DANGEROUS
TOO HAZARDOUS
TOO PERILOUS
AND I FAR TOO VULNERABLE TO LET GO
WHEN I CHANCED TO LOOK AGAIN
YOU WERE GONE
YOU WERE GONE
SO I MOVED WARILY ON

AS TIME WENT BY I WONDERED
“HEY! WHERE’D HE GO?”
LOVE’S NO LONGER QUITE SO DAUNTING
TO A YOUNG GIRL’S HEART
I HAD MISSED MY CHANCE BOTCHED IT UP
AND NOW IT WAS TOO LATE
MY TIMING BAD
TOO LATE TOO LATE

AND THEN CAME FATE
OR GOD’S DESIGN
WE CAME TO MEET BY CHANCE AGAIN
AND I CAUGHT YOU UNAWARE
YOU PASSED ME BY
I CALLED YOUR NAME
FROM SOMEWHERE IN MIDAIR
YOU SEE I’D SEARCHED MY HEART FOR ANSWERS
AND I FOUND YOU STANDING THERE
YES THERE WAS YOU
THERE YOU WERE
THERE — NOT TOO LATE
NOT TOO SOON
THERE ON THAT SUNDAY AFTERNOON
