"You Were There" as written by and Dennis Leigh....
You were there
When I was looking through
Your pictures in the night
You were there
When I fell asleep and I
Woke up in the light
And when the streets filled
And my heart stilled
And I asked someone the time
[Chorus:]
You were there
You were there
You were there
I know you were
And you were there
When I stopped to stare
By the quiet trees
And you were there
And I thought that you were
Someone else I'd seen
And when the traffic roared
And my heart soared
So that I could hardly breathe
(Chorus)
Oh you were there
When I stood and watched
From so many years ago
You must have smiled
When I was walking through
The places that you'd known
And when I'd given up
And all the letters stopped
And no trace at all remained
(Chorus)
