Lyrics

Other arms have held me before your time
Other lips have thrilled me before your time
Other eyes have seen the light you see in my eyes tonight
Oh, but darlin’, that was long before your time
Other hearts have been broken before your time
Unkind words were spoken before your time
Other ears have heard me say the things I say to you today
But darlin’, that was long before your time
Before you came along I sang this same old song before
The melody was born when we walked right to love’s door
The words I love you came but I just couldn’t sing that line
Oh, but darlin’, that was long before your time
Before you came along I sang this same old song before
The melody was born when we walked right to love’s door
The words I love you came but I just couldn’t sing that line
Oh, but darlin’, that was long before your time
