Elvis Costello – I Threw It All Away lyrics

I once held her
In my arms
She said she would always stay
But I was cruel
And I treated her like a fool
I threw it all away
Once I had mountains
In the palm of my hand
And rivers to drink through everyday
But I must have been mad
I never knew what I had
Until I threw it all away

Love is all there is
That makes the world go round
Love as only love
Can't be denied

Not matter what you think about it
Just won't be able to do without it
Take a tip from one who's tried

So when you find someone
Who gives you all of her love
Take it to your heart don't
Let is stray
Cause one thing for certain
You will surely be hurting
If you throw it all away
If you throw it all away
