Where Were You? m

Story Behind The Song

Lyrics

How did you find me? My heart had wandered off alone
Lost deep in no man's land, until you led me by the hand
Now love knows it's way home
I'm glad I found you. I've been searching high and low
There you were, in your eyes, the missing pieces in my life
That were lost so long ago

Where were you when I was dark and lonely?
Where were you when I needed someone?
Where were you when all hope had left me?
Where were you?

But now I've lost you, and I'm alone again tonight
Can't close my eyes and count to ten, you hide the truth from me again
Ready or not here comes goodbye

Where were you when I was dark and lonely?
Where were you when I needed someone?
Where were you when all hope had left me?
Where were you?

I hear the door creaking open. I hear you climb up the stairs.
I need to ask you once more, even though we both know that you don't even care

Where were you when I was dark and lonely?
Where were you when I needed someone?
Where were you when all hope had left me?
Where were you? Where were you?
Where were you when my heart was breaking?
Where were you when I longed for sweet love?
Can't you see I've always been here waiting?
Where were you? Where were you?
