(Dave Loggins/Lisa Silver/Don Schlitz)

I would have waited forever
If I'd known that you'd be here
We could have shared our lives together
And held each other close all through the years
But I've met someone before you
And my heart just couldn't wait
So no matter how much I adore you
I've got to stand behind the promise that I made

Where were you
When I could have loved you
Where were you
When I gave my heart away
All my life I've been dreaming of you
You came along one promise too late
You came along one promise too late

I won't say that I'm sorry that I met you
I can't have you but I never will forget you

Where were you
When I could have loved you
Where were you
When I gave my heart away
All my life I've been dreaming of you
You came along one promise too late
You came along one promise too late

Where were you
When I could have loved you
Where were you
When I gave my heart away
All my life I've been dreaming of you
You came along one promise too late
You came along one promise too late

    Its like when you're happy with someone and then out of the blue someone else comes into your life, and you're smittened. Part of you wants to let a new love grow but your heart has to decline... how do you tell that someone that you wished they had been there way back when? This is how...
    great lyric.
    two thumbs way up
