A song about lost love.


Words and Music by JAG Delaney (c)2009

Verse 1
Once I loved a girl
Once upon a time
But the dream became a nightmare
and her passion turned to crimes
Against the state of faithfulness
I sinned against that too
Once I loved a girl
that looked like you

Once I broke my heart,
the fault was mine alone
I didn’t need you to do it,
I was more than capable on my own
Once I broke my heart ,
I used you as the reason
Once I loved a girl,
before the rainy season
Set in like the sun

Once I loved a girl, once I loved a
Girl that looked like you, once I loved a
Girl, But now I’m blue
Without You
When once I loved a girl

Verse 2
Once I loved a girl,
Once upon A heartbreak
All past and present incorrect,
Can’t rectify the great mistake
I made in making so much
of the love I made with you
Once I loved a girl
Now you say that girl wasn’t you

Pre-Chorus & Chorus as above

Once I loved a girl
Once I loved a girl
