​When I Was Yours

This song is by Emmylou Harris and appears on the album Thirteen (1986).

(Emmylou Harris/Paul Kennerley)

In a lonely room waiting for the night to fall
I hear your voice in every whip-poor-will that calls
And it takes me back to a better place and a sweeter time
When I was yours and you were mine.

As the shadows fall and the light grows dim
I see your face, I close my eyes and feel the warmth
Of your embrace as I long for you
And for all those days when hearts entwined
When I was yours and you were mine.
When I was yours and you were mine.

When I was yours and you were mine.
A truer love in Caroline
Ever waltzed across these hills and danced beneath the stars
Life was sweeter than the flowers blooming on the vine
When I was yours and you were mine.

So I lay my head
On a pillow soft and stained with tears
I cry for you through all the long and lonely years
But when I dream till the morning sun comes to shine
Then I'll be yours and you'll be mine.

Yes, I will go back to a better place and a sweeter time
When I was yours and you were mine...
