Once I Loved

Patricia Marx

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 and 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
