We Almost Had It All
We Almost Had It All
By the beach, I walk. I see sea gulls flock. Breeze touching my face,
I can almost feel your embrace.
From a distance, I hear you whisper. From a distance, I hear it clearer.
I stop my heart, I make it tame. When I hear you call out my name.
I hear sea waves crashing against the rocks. The sound of it makes me
miss you a lot. Softly, the birds sing their song. Oh how much for you
From a distance, I hear you speak. As I hear your voice, my knees go
weak. If only I knew the words to express how I feel. Then you’d be
with me, you’d be here.
By the beach, the sun sets. I remember the day we first met. You were
by the beach on your knees. Asking my name, you even said please.
From a distance I see it before my eyes. I remembered too well how sparks
started to fly. We were inseparable, we fell so in love as we walked by
the beach gazing the stars above.
By the beach, we were to wed. It all changed when that fatal accident happened.
I remember too well that fateful night. Watching the news, it was a horrible
You were driving, on your way to me. When a car swiveled and took you away from
me. In the news, about your death I learned. I couldn’t breathe, my throat burned.
I cried a river upon realization. I just couldn’t stop this painful sensation.
I once had you, you were mine. Now everything isn’t fine.
I hear the waves beat against the shore and here I am with a mountain to climb.
If I could just change it all you're heart would beat here next to mine.
My love, sweet love I say this so that you'll know, "Though you're now gone away
from me it doesn't mean I'll ever let you go."
My love, sweet love, never can I replace you, no one in this world will ever do.
They'll never understand that my true love is only you.
Oh love, sweet love you were the very best thing that my Creator has given me.
By the beach, I stand here and there's nothing left but memories.
You were my heart
You were my soul
Yes my tears do steady fall.
In our grasp
It was there
Babe, we almost had it all!
