The Day Before You Came

Before you I knew only heartache
My life empty, and leading nowhere
Walking the path they call loneliness,
Until the day you told me you cared

But I was betrothed to another
And no matter how hard we tried
The bond between us grew stronger
The loved we shared couldn’t be denied

The day before you came
I knew heartache, tears and pain
Then your love shone on me, warm and bright
Although our love was wrong
It helped me to grow strong
To break through the darkness, into the light

Others told us we wouldn’t last
Years passed, and we proved them wrong
Nothing could pull us asunder
The love we had, was much too strong

The day before you came
I knew heartache, tears and pain
Then your love shone on me, warm and bright
Although our love was wrong,
It helped me to grow strong
To break through the darkness, into the light

Now you shine in heaven
My life’s filled with pain
The same as it was,
The day before you came

Now my life is empty without you
I’m learning to live through the pain
And I know that when my life is over
We’ll walk beside each other again

The day before you came
I knew heartache, tears and pain
Then your love shone on me, warm and bright
Although now you’re gone,
Your love light guides me on
To break through darkness, into the light.
