Oh You Were the Best of All My Days

Don’t give your tears to me / Just give me private property / I think we let the good ones slip away / Don’t thank me for my time / Just give me one more trail to climb / I think we let the good ones slip away

And I been thinkin’ about you, Honey / cuz I think we had somethin’ lovely / and I don’t know how it could have been / and never be that way again / And this thinkin’ makes me crazy / cuz I don’t think I can find a way to be back / starin’ in your eyes / lyin’ in your arms / you’re tellin’ me your thoughts and hearin’ mine / like a fairy book charm / It is over, it is through / though I have never taken my heart off of you

Lyin’ in your bed for a little while / Flowers on your chair, thought I saw you smile / We’d set the clock a thousand times / I never saw the end of the rhyme scheme / comin’ like clouds on a summer day / comin’ like cares, comin’ in the way / of a life that I thought I saw shine / You got more than a piece of my mind

I been thinkin’ about you, Honey / cuz I think we had something so lovely / and I don’t know how it could have been / and never be that way again / And this thinkin’ makes me crazy / cuz I wanna find a way to be back / starin’ in your eyes / lyin’ in your arms / you’re tellin’ me your thoughts and hearin’ mine / like a fairy book charm / Is it over, is it through / cuz I ain’t never takin’ my heart off of you

Your lips, your hair, your ankles, your toes / the way you talk, the way you move, Dear / Everybody knows me knows I still want you / Heaven help me, I still want you

Don’t give your tears to me / Just give me private property / I think we let the good ones slip away

But I been thinkin’ about you, Honey / cuz I think we had something lovely / and I don’t know how it could have been / and never be that way again / And this thinkin’ makes me crazy / Won’t you help me find a way to be back / starin’ in your eyes / lyin’ in your arms / you’re tellin’ me your thoughts and hearin’ mine / like a fairy book charm / Won’t you tell me it ain’t through / cuz I ain’t never takin’ my heart off of you
