EmmyLou Harris Lost His Love Lyrics

It’s over our love affair
Too late now I find I care
His sweet love no more I’ll share
Now he’s gone, I’m alone
I was wrong, should have known
Took me home on our last date
I search for a single way
To tell him what I had to say
I kissed him, watched him walk away
Set him free foolishly, destiny, misery
Tragedy on our last date
Took the ring from my trembling fingers
Brushed a tear from my baby’s eye
Walked away, didn’t know
That I’d soon miss him so
Guess I was too young to realize
So blind I couldn’t see
How much he really meant to me
And that soon he would always be
On my mind, in my heart, I was blind from the start
Lost his love on our last date
