Astrud Gilberto – Once I Loved lyrics

Once I loved,
And I gave so much love to this love,
It was the world to me.

Once I cried,
At the thought I was foolish and proud,
And let you say goodbye.

Then one day,
From my infinite saddness you came,
And brought me love again.

Now I know,
That no matter whatever befalls,
I'll never let you go.

I will hold you close,
Make you stay.

Because love,
Is the saddest thing,
When it goes away.

Because love,
Is the saddest thing,
When it goes away.
