You Were My Life

from by Robin Vining



you, you, you,
you were my life, life ,life
life, and I thought, thought, thought,
thought you were mine

mine, but the truth, truth, truth
was you were hers, hers, hers,
hers all the time

when you hit, hit me
right in the face, face, face
I said, "you can't, can't hurt me"
but I lied
I was just try, try, tryin'
trying to make you love me more instead

Holy cow, kid
hold me again

Holy cow, kid
hold me again

when I saw, saw, saw
just how much worse, worse, worse
she treated you, I just,
had to laugh

I thought that I, I,
I was the one
who had it bad!

I love you, Mina
and I'm sorry
we're only human beings
with feelings after all
