download (1)It used to be —
That my name filled your heart
That I filled your thoughts;
It used to be —
That you even serenaded me
Your face always with a smile
Your eyes beaming and all aglow.

But now you’ve changed
Wherefore is the warmth of your love?
The one you promised would never end?

Wasn’t it that you always seemed to sense
The fragrance of flowers, the sway of the wind;
Wasn’t it that you used not to care
The ticking of the clock as time flew by . . .
Enamored as you were.
But now the ardor and sweetness of your love has gone
Oh, do you still have need of my love?

It used to be —
That my word was your shelter and strength
That made you unwavering amidst trials;
It used to be —
That you always spoke of me to friends
With much warmth and enthusiasm
Why is it that it has now turned so cold?

You don’t know it but I am hurting
Ever since you disregarded my love
Come near me, for I am waiting
Oh, I am waiting . . . .

But now you’ve changed
Wherefore is the warmth of your love?
The one you promised would never end?

You don’t know it but I am hurting
Ever since you disregarded my love
Come near me, for I am waiting
Oh, I am waiting . . . .

*Dear Lord, I was blinded by a deceitful world
Forgive me.
From now on, this life of mine I offer to Thee
Make use of me, just like before
The way it used to be,
The way it should be.
