The Love That We Lost
Chely Wright Lyrics


Going through old dresser drawers
Fumbling through there closets
It's got to be here somewhere
I know it's round here somewhere

Searching from room to room
We couldn't have just lost it
I know it's round here somewhere
It's got to be here somewhere
Maybe we packed it up
With college books and winter clothes
Things we thought were in the way
Out of style or just outgrown

We didn't give it away
We just left it alone
We tried to find it one day
That's when we noticed it gone
I turned the house upside down
Praying I'd stumble across
Some sign that's it's still around
Got to find the love that we lost

Captured in old picture frames
Shinning in those faces
It used to be here somewhere
I know it's still here somewhere
Reflected in our children's eyes
How could we misplace it
I know it was here yesterday
How could it just slip away
it was more then just a box of junk
We stored away to gather dust
This was a dream we thought
We always could reach out and touch

We didn't give it away
We just left it alone
We tried to find it one day
That's when we noticed it gone
I turned the house upside down
Praying I'd stumble across
Some sign that's it's still around
Got to find the love that we lost

We didn't give it away
We just left it alone
We tried to find it one day
That's when we noticed it gone
I turned the house upside down
Praying I'd stumble across
Some sign that's it's still around
Got to find the love that we lost

Got to find the love that we lost

She is a very underrated country singer. She came out of the closet and everyone's shunned her. I hated that. She's still a good singer and I saw her in concert when I was 8. She is my inspiration and the reason I want to be a singer.

Donald Davis

One of the best singers in the business.  This song was one of the first I heard of Chely.  I love this and all she has done since.,

The first song that actually made me cry. I love this song.

This song is wonderful. She re-recorded it for Single White Female, but this original remains my favorite.

I remember this song back in the Spring of 96 and when I was at the Iowa Braille School in Vinton Iowa my friend named Amber Bushbaum and I sang the chorus part when her and I played at the playground Braille Hill the playground's name. I remember on Friday April 19 of 96 I was at home upstairs in my Room when Kix 101 radio played this song and I sang along 2 this song.
