Almost

Almost, you fell in love with me
Almost, you were my bride to be
But each promise that was made
You have broken and betrayed
And left me with a faded memory.

Almost, my precious dreams came true
Almost, you whispered, dear I do
But someone new came by
And you left me here to cry
Oh, how close we were, almost.

--- Instrumental ---

Almost, your heart I did possess
Almost, you brought me happiness
But my dreams just won't come true
And there's nothing I can do.

Oh, how close we were, almost...
