Standing There

Angela Crabtree 1982 (maine)




Standing There

When I left you standing there...
 A tear of joy stammered near...
 When I left you standing there...
 I drove away with a smile to bare...
 When I left you standing there...
 A thought crossed my mind with whom no one to share...

 When I left you standing there...
 You told me you'd always be near...
 When I left you standing there...
 You told me you loved me and we'd soon be scared...
 When I left you standing there...
 My heart felt shame, and cold and bare...

 When I left you standing there...
 I knew in my heart it was time to share...
 When I left you standing there...
 I knew that I loved you and wanted you near...
 When I left you standing there...
 My tears of joy turned instantly to fear...
 So I left you standing there...
