"The Best Years Of My Life" lyrics

The Best Years Of My Life

Thank goodness for the curtains
That I draped around the windows
In my room
They keep the sun from shining through
So it won't find me here
In all my gloom

My eyes are red and swollen
From the tears that baby's leaving me
Has left
I haven't got the heart to go outside
And face the world
Alone just yet

God knows I'm just as empty
As the closet where he used to
Hang his clothes
And passing by that mirror
I see ten years of my life
Just come and go

The radio is playing
Some old song that baby used to
Sing to me
And in between my heartbeats
Lord, I think about the way
It used to be

I tied the best years of my life
Around his love
Passing my world to his
And gave my heart because
I believed him
Everything is sad
I thought that's how it was
I tied the best years of my life
Around his love

I crossed the bridge of memories
Where the grass was green
And his sweet dream was mine
But all about is over now
He's broken all those precious ties
That bind

I tied the best years of my life
Around his love
Passing my world to his
And gave my heart because
I believed him
Everything is sad
I thought that's how it was
I tied the best years of my life
Around his love
