From the recording 'CAUSE I ONCE LOVED YOU

Cathy's first recording of this song. We used piano and strings on this version. She later did another version (see below) with guitar. I absolutely love this song. This one also includes the 3rd verse not heard on the other version.

Lyrics

CAUSE I ONCE LOVED YOU

I OFTEN THINK ABOUT YOU
AND WONDER WHAT YOU’RE DOING
DID DREAMS YOU USED TO SHARE WITH ME COME TRUE?
BETWEEN US LIES THREE THOUSAND DAYS AND MILES
BUT TO THIS DAY I THINK OF YOU AND SMILE

YOUR LIGHT IS ALWAYS SHINING
THOUGH CIRCUMSTANCE AND TIMING
WASN’T ON OUR SIDE AND WE WERE YOUNG
BUT I STAY TOUCHED FOR YOU HAVE LEFT YOUR MARK
IN YOUR SECRET LITTLE CORNER OF MY HEART

‘CAUSE I ONCE LOVED YOU
AND YOU ONCE LOVED ME
OH YOU WERE PRECIOUS AND I FELT BEAUTIFUL
I WON’T FORGET YOU
YOU LIVE WITHIN ME
YOU ARE WHY I’M WHO I AM TODAY
AND THIS I TREASURE AND HOLD FOREVER
A SMALL PART OF YOU
‘CAUSE I ONCE LOVED YOU

NOW THERE’S A DIFFERENT PERSON
BUT ONE THING IS FOR CERTAIN
BECAUSE OF YOU I’LL NEVER BE THE SAME
NO MATTER WHO I LOVE YOU’LL STILL BE HERE
AND IN MY HEART I’LL ALWAYS HOLD YOU DEAR
