​Woman, You Took My Life

This song is by Kevin Johnson and appears on the album Rock And Roll I Gave You The Best Years Of My Life (1974) and on the album Greatest Hits (1980).

Woman you were good to me,
Did every single thing for me that you could do,
When I could see no point in going on,
I'd lift myself up knowing,
On another day,
I'd see you,

In my need I reached for you,
The steady hand to lead me through the darkest day,
You took me running, chasing after better things,
The laughter of another day,
Imaging how I felt then when I found,
That you had gone away.

Woman, you took my hopes,
You took my dreams,
Woman, you took my love, you took my schemes,
You left me nothing else to do,
But turn around and start anew,
Woman, when you walked out,
You took my life away with you.

Through a haze of fantasies,
Fears and uncertainties you came to me,
A reason to be going on,
A hope when hope had nearly gone,
A will in me that had to be,
Imaging how I felt then when I found,
That you had gone away.
