Then There Was You

Then There Was You

Tragedy, abuse, heartache and strife
Have been constant companions for most of my life,
If there was real happiness, then I never knew
Until I opened my eyes - and then there was you.

My days were all filled with confusion and dread
I fought and I struggled with the demons in my head,
I longed for a lover to share in all that I'd do
One day I opened my eyes - and then there was you.
.
I cried and I pleaded with the sweet Lord above
To bless me just once and introduce me to love.
I prayed for an Angel and for all my dreams to come true
I opened my eyes - and then there was you

I had waited and ached for some strong loving arms
And someone to ease my pain and help me feel calm,
For these blessings I wondered what I had to do
I just opened my eyes - and then there was you.

I had never believed in those fairytale things
Hearts and flowers and Valentines and Cherubs with wings,
If there was true romance then I never knew
Until I opened my eyes - and then there was you.

Somehow my life changed and it spun me around
I was given a chance to enjoy the love that I found,
I finally felt happy and had pure love sweet and true
And all this is mine - cause now there is you.
