Once I Loved Lyrics

by Frank Sinatra

Once, once I loved and I gave so much love
To this love, you were the world to me
Once I cried at the thought
I was foolish and proud and let you say goodbye

And then one day from my infinite sadness
You came and brought me love again
Now I know that no matter what
Ever befalls I'll never let you go

I will hold you close, make you stay
Because love is the saddest thing
When it goes away
Love is the saddest thing when it goes away
