​Where Were You

This song is by Maria Mena and appears on the album Cause and Effect (2008).

I was a backing track
Saving my green voices back
Disguising the obvious
That I had no one to sing for
I lived in a paper bin
Which I lived curled up and forgotten in
With an unfinished lovers hymn
Tattooed on my forehead

Oh, Oh, Oh,
Where were you?
Had I known you then
The outcome would have been better

I got used to the treadmill love
Where no matter how fast you run
You're stuck at the starting point
Only exhausted
I was the anonymous author
Of songs I'd not dared to share
Lacking the audience of a lover's ear

Oh, Oh, Oh,
Oh, Oh, Oh,
Where were you?
Had I know you then
The outcome would have been better

You could have prevented this
You could have prevented this
You could have prevented this
You could have prevented this

You could have prevented this
You could have prevented this
You could have prevented this
You could have prevented

Oh, Oh, Oh,
Where were you?
Had you known me then
The outcome would have been better
