I Was There
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


I was there (I was there)
I was there (I was there)
When love crashed and burned
I was there.

I was there when love came around
With sweet, warm kisses
I was there when it burned into desire
I was there when it ran into a raging river
And then turned into a runaway wildfire.

I was there (I was there)
I was there (I was there)
When love came around
I was there.

And one thing certain
I did all the hurtin'
At love's final curtain
I was there.

--- Instrumental ---

I was there when love came in
Like a living tornado
And I was there when it blew out of control
I was there when something quickly turned into nothing
Just a hopeless, helpless dream gone up in smoke.

I was there (I was there)
I was there (I was there)
When love came around
I was there.

And one thing certain
I did all the hurtin'
At love's final curtain
I was there.

I was there (I was there)
I was there (I was there)
When love came around
I was there.

And one thing certain
I did all the hurtin'
At love's final curtain
I was there.

I was there (I was there)
I was there (I was there)
When love came around
I was there.

And one thing certain
I did all the hurtin'...
