Phillips

Time was so important when I came
And I knew who was to blame
And then there came a day when
When you told me that you wanted me to come along and live with you
And then you were mine and you said
You wanted me to live with you
And I believed you like a fool
I thought that what you said was true
And oh for all I knew it was true, it was true, it was you
And then you were mine and it was sublime
The things we said were meant to be said in bed
And I know that I loved you true

Time was so important when I came
And I knew who was to blame
But then there came a day when you told me not to come back
I didn't want to but I did just the same
And then you were mine and you said
You wanted me to live with you
And I believed you like a fool
I thought that what you said was true
And oh for all I knew it was true, it was true, it was you
And then you were mine and it was sublime
The things we said were meant to be said in bed
And I know that I loved you true
