You Had To Be There
Roger Taylor Lyrics

The sweetest moments
That I ever had
The most magic memories
That I recall

(When the man came out
And complained in the hall)
When I met you
When I met you
'You had to be there'

The darkest hour
That I ever lived
And the longest fall
That I ever fell

And the sun went in
And the night was hell
When you left me
When you left me
'You had to be there'

The sweetest thoughts
That I entertain
Are of happy days
That might come again

I don't know your face
I don't know your name
'Til we meet again
'You have to be there'

I just love this song. It's been on my iPod for years now...that and Old Friends.

Tyler Crockett

Of course I’m not crying. Why would I be crying? Just because this is a beautiful, touching song sung by a beautiful man? Please, don’t be ridiculous.😢😢
