Lyrics
(Lorene Mann)

I had something precious something very hard to find
But I didn't know it till it was no longer mine
And now now when I lost it and there's nothing I can do
I know that something precious was you.

I had something precious something very sweet and rare
But I didn't want it till it was no longer there
And now now that another has won the love I refused
I know that something precious was you.

You were one I wanted (yes you were one I wanted)
What I was looking for (just what I was looking for)
And I kept on searching (yes I kept on searching)
For something close to love.

And now now that another has won the love I refused
I know that something precious was you...

Thanks to Jefferson for correcting these lyrics
