You Loved Me

The vision that you left me
Stayed with me through the day:
I knew then that you loved me
But had to walk away

You think I couldn’t tell how
You felt about me then?
You really think I didn’t know
How lovesick you had been?

A man can be a daft thing
A being, unaware —
But I’d have been both blind and deaf
To think you didn’t care

You barely even knew me
You just thought that you did;
A secret that you carried
Kept underneath a lid

But I could feel your longing,
What you’d anticipate:
I knew I had to end it
Before it was too late

The vision that you left me
Stayed with me through the night:
I didn’t want to hurt you
But this
Would not be
Right
