Anthony Phillips – I Saw You Today (1980) lyrics

[From the album Private Parts And Pieces ii: Back To The Pavillion]
I saw you today
And through the distant years
It all came back.
Two people young and sheltered
So unwary of the snares
But we now know where
And now a woman that's still brown
And very beautiful
You haven't changed
She took your place
Ohh what a face
Didn't think I needed you
But I was wrong
She came and she went out
Upon a voyage at sea
She's never coming back
But now you both are gone at sea
So long ago
I was a happy man
I saw you today
It didn't seem as if you're coming back
I saw myself today
It didn't seem as if I'm coming back
And low upon the hills
I see a shadow pass to the other side
We must accept these things
Oh how I love you (I saw you today)
Oh how I love you (I saw you today)
Oh how I love you (I saw you today)
Oh how I love you (Oh how I love you)
