Rene Froger – The World I Threw Away lyrics

Today I saw you on the street
How sad it was for us to meet
For in that moment of 'hello'
I found the world that I let go
After all the years apart
How strange to find you in my heart
How sad to find that I still love you so
We spoke of all the happy days
Before we went our separate ways
Seeing you I knew the past
Had caught up with my heart at last
I was young and full of spring
Until I saw your weddingring
It told me of the world I threw away
As we whispered our goodbyes
I held my tears behind my eyes
You kissed my cheek for old time's sake
And I could feel my poor heart break
It was A crazy thing to do
But when you left I followed you
I had to see the world I threw away
I saw the streets I left behind
I saw my yesterdays unwind
And in the park and in the square
The past was waiting everywhere
With each
