I Didn't Know What Time It Was

Gal Costa

Once I was young
Yesterday perhaps
Danced with Jim and Paul
And kisses some other chaps
Once I was young
But never was naive
I thought I had a trick or two
Up my imaginary sleeve and now I know
I was naive
I didn’t know what time it was
Then I met you
Oh! what a lovely time it was
How sublime it was too
I didn’t know what day it was
You held my hand
Warm like the month of may it was
And I’ll say it was grand
Grand to be alive, to be young to be mad
To be yours alone
Grand to see your face
Feel your touch
Hear your voice
Say I’m all your own
I didn’t know
What year it was
Life was no prize
I wanted love and here it was
Shining out of your eyes
I’m wise
And I know what time is now.
