Liza Minnelli – What Did I Have That I Don't Have? lyrics

What did I have that I don't have?
What did he like that I lost track of?
What did I do that I don’t do the way I did before?

What isn't there that once was there?
What have I got a great big lack of?
Something in me that he could see
That beckons to him no more

Oh, I'm just a victim of time
Obsolete in my prime
Out of date and outclassed, by my past

What did he love that there’s none of?
What did I lose the sweet warm knack of?
Wouldn’t I be the late great me, if I knew how?
What did I have I don't have now?

What did he see that’s gone in me?
What did I use that now I'm shy of?
Why is the sequel never the equal?
Why is there no encore?

Where can I go to repair?
All the wear and the tear
Till I’m once again the previous me

What did he like that I am not like?
What was the charm that I've run dry of?
What would I give if my old know how
Still knew how?

What did I have I don’t have now?
What did he love that there’s none of?
What did I have I don’t have now?
