I've watched you growin' up
While we have grown apart.
Happy birthday from the bottom of my heart.
We're deep in darkness
That stirs a memory
Of happier moments
When you were lovin' me.

When you were lovin' me,
When you were lovin' me,
You taught me to feel
But you couldn't help me see,
A time would come when I'd wanna forget when you were lovin' me.

Like dust collectin'
In a corner of the room
I sit expectin'
That I'll see you very soon.
I should have known better
It's never gonna be,
Gone are the good times
When you were lovin' me.

You put dancin' in my life babe,
And a glitter in my eye.
I was young and I was troubled,
But you helped me to get by.
You put laces on my shoes babe,
Hot cakes on my menu.
I can't help but think about you,
Back when you were lovin' me.

When you were lovin' me,
When you were lovin' me,
You taught me to feel
But you couldn't help me see,
A time would come when I'd wanna forget when you were lovin' me.

You put dancin' in my life babe,
And a glitter in my eye.
I was young and I was troubled,
But you helped me to get by.
You put laces on my shoes babe,
Hot cakes on my menu.
I can't help but think about you,
Back when you were lovin' me.
