When You Were Mine

When You were Mine

Lori Lieberman

When you were mine
I got down on my knees
And thanked the stars up in the sky
For sending me a love true and divine
And now I know what it feels like to let go

When you were mine
I walked on a wire unafraid with you there
And I felt like I could fly
I bless the days
You were mine

When you were mine
The demons that had moved into my life
Went for a drive
And I rented out their room for a while
And for a time
They were miles and miles away

When you were mine
I walked on a wire
Unafraid with you there
And I felt like I could fly
I bless the days
You were mine

When I could walk through fire
Anything at all
Walk upon a wire
You would break my fall…

When you were mine
I got down on my knees
And thanked the stars up in the sky
For sending me a love true and divine
When you were mine
I got down on my knees…
