Roy Orbison – Almost lyrics

Almost, you fell in love with me
Almost, you were my bride to be
But someone new came by
And you left me here to cry
Oh, how close we were, almost

Almost, I heard the church bells ring
Almost, I heard the choir sing
Well, each promise that was made
You have broken and betrayed
Oh, how close we were, almost

Almost, my every dream came true
Almost, I heard you say, "I Do"
But I hear now instead
All those unkind words you said
Oh, how close we were, almost

Oh, how close we were, almost
Oh, how close we were, almost
