The Dells – The Love We Had (Stays On My Mind) lyrics

Lately, babe, I've been thinking
How good it was when you were near
And it ain't the wine
That I've been drinking
For once I feel my head is clear

But early this morning
When I opened my eyes
That old lonesome feeling
Took me by surprise
I guess you meant more
Than I realized

The love we had stays on my mind
(The love we had)
The love we had stays on my mind
(Stays on my mind)

And, pretty girl, I've been remembering
The good times that we used to share
My thoughts of you don't have an ending
And memories of you are everywhere

But why should I tell you
It's not your concern
You win some, you lose some
I've lost and I've learned

It's just that I'm so lonely
With no place to turn
And here at the end, I find
The love we had stays on my mind

Girl, if you were nearer
If you had a mirror
Maybe you could count my tears

And if you were nearer
It would all be clearer
How I wish that you were here

How I wish that you were here
How I wish that you were here

And, baby girl, I was tired
So I lay down to dream awhile
And lately, I've been so uninspired
Without the comfort of your smile

But I'm not complaining
Cause that's how it goes
There's always some heartaches
In this world, I suppose
But you can't imagine, nobody knows

The love
(The love we had stays on my mind)
Stays on my mind
Stays on my mind
(The love we had stays on my mind)

I never will forget you, baby
(The love we had stays on my mind)
Why, how can I tell you
(The love we had stays on my mind)
No, no, no, no

(The love we had stays on my mind)
I never, never will forget you baby
(The love we had stays on my mind)
It's so lonesome without you, darling
(The love we had stays on my mind)

Oh, I want you, baby
(The love we had stays on my mind)
I want you, baby
(The love we had stays on my mind)...

    Here is a man who realizes too late that he's lost the love of his life. He expresses so passionately that this woman meant more to him than he even realized. It's in her absence that he feels the weight of the loss. The beauty of this song is the open declaration of his condition without this woman and his recollections of love with and life without her. You feel the emotion of his love that cries through the lyrics and makes the listening experience a part of this expression.
