Now the first day that I met ya I was looking in the sky When the sun turned all a blur And the thunderclouds rolled by The sea began to shiver And the wind began to moan It must’ve been a sign for me To leave you well alone I was born without you, baby But my feelings were a little bit too strong
You never said you love me And I don’t believe you can ‘Cause I saw you in a dream And you were with another man You looked so cool and casual And I tried to look the same But now I’ve got to know ya Tell me who have I to blame? I was born without you, baby But my feelings were a little bit too strong Just a little bit too strong
Now the whole wide world is movin’ ‘Cause there’s iron in my heart I just can’t keep from cryin’ ‘Cause you say we’ve got to part Sorrow grips my voice as I stand here all alone And watch you slowly take away A love I’ve never known I was born without you, baby But my feelings were a little bit too strong Just a little bit too strong
