Song: Once I’d Had Love

Once I’d had love,
I had to have it all the time,
The years when I was in my prime,
To do without it was a crime.
Life with-out love,
You know it isn’t worth a dime,
Or even just a cent, but cent don’t rhyme.

You gave me love,
But then you took your love away.
You promised you would always stay,
You didn’t though, but that’s okay.
All that sweet love,
Made me the man I am today.
Will you return to me? I cannot say.

Should love find you,
Be careful you do not offend.
She always conquers in the end,
You really want to be her friend.
If love chooses,
Your happiness will never end.
Or else your broken heart may never mend
