Lead Vocal - Phil Odgers

lyrics

I’ll slip away gently
So you won’t resent me
I won’t turn on the light
Gone before morn
And the first rays of dawn Like a thief in the night

Oh love my life
Never knew you would be someone else’s

I took you for granted
I was enchanted
I was lost in your charms
That’s no excuse
What’s the use
When you’re in someone else’s arms

Oh love my life
Never knew you would be someone else’s

I’ll try to forget
We ever met
That’s the best I can do
But if he ever hurts
Or deserts
I’ll be waiting for you

Oh love my life
Never knew you would be someone else’s
