​It Would Have Been Just Perfect

This song is by Donna Fargo and appears on the album The Happiest Girl In The Whole U.S.A. (1972).

I can almost feel his footsteps
As he tip toes through my mind
And plays upon the memory
Of what was his and mine

Through this finger printed window pane
We watched the seasons change
And scolded and pouted and justified
And bragged and complained

I can't remember was it yesterday
Or a thousand years ago
When he made me a little wedding band
From a strip of paper gold

When blushes brought confessions
Of what words would deny
When we analyzed the meaning
Of I love you and good-bye

Foundations were laid and two hearts made
And teased the time and all of it's demands
But oh life gave time right back to us
And all that we were sure of
Was the birth of a woman and a man

At this table in the corner
We went all around the world
And we gave paupers crowns to wear
When he called me his girl

But naturally reality played hide and seek sometimes
And more than once we tripped and fell
But learned something every time

Oh but life was almost as happy
As these memories make it seem
And it would have been just perfect
If only I could have loved him
