Before there ever came the time that I could realize
That you've meant all the world to me
You turned and I was gone to find the good life I've been missin'
But you were all the good there was in me
I went from bad to worse and back to find the good time
But it took the time like this to make me see
I searched high and low to just to find my reason
But you were all the good there ever was in me
[ steel ]
It's sad to think that much too late I've come to understand
That all the world was laying at my feet
I kicked aside the love that means much more than life just now
And you were all the good there was in me
I went from bad to worse...
Yes you were all the good there ever was in me
