I Have Let Love Pass Me By

You told me that your name was Maria,

And that you came

From the Netherlands,

But you looked more like a Latina,

With flowing dark hair, maybe a natural tan,

 

I was in love,

So much in love,

But I let love pass me by,

All through my life,

So much of my life, I have let love pass me by.

 

You left me with a casual ‘I’ll see you’,

But I looked for you

All over London town,

It’s as if I had been paralysed with fear,

Did I see you on the underground?

 

I was in love,

So much in love,

But I let love pass me by,

All through my life,

So much of my life, I have let love pass me by.
