A moment ago it seemed
It was yesterday
You were here with me
And everything seems to be the same
What am I supposed to do with all these empty rooms
Sit here in solitude with the smell of your perfume


Chorus:
You never took the time to know me
You never took the time to understand
You never took the time to know me, yeah
'cause loving you is all I ever had
Said loving you is all I ever had

This wasn't what I wanted to be
A man in misery
Girl I look back 1000 times and can't believe that you left me (Why you leave me baby)
Why can't you understand my pain
How can I explain
Girl I don't know what im doing wrong
I Can't believe that your love is gone

[Chorus]
'cause You never took the time to know me (Said you never took the time to know me)
You never took the time to understand (Ohhhh yeaahh)
You never took the time to know me, yeah (Said you never took the time to know me)
See loving you is all I ever had
Baby loving you is all I ever had

Ooo yeah
Your All i need
Your all I see
And I Wish that we could do it again

[Chorus]
'cause You never took the time to know me (Baby you never took the time to know me)
You never took the time to understand (Ohhhh yeaahh)
Said You never took the time to know me, yeah
Because of you now I'm just a lonely man
Ooh
Because of you now I'm just a lonely man
