"As You Once Were" as written by and Williams Sun Ra....
Once you were the girl of my dreams
Once you were my heart, it seems
But now I know and it still goes
What you once were you still are to me

Once you were flowers in June
Warm as the words in a lovely tune
But I can't tell and it's just as well
What you once were you still are to me

How am I to know that it still goes
Darling, if you don't tell me now
You took my heart and tore it apart
I felt then it was near the end

Now it's true - what am I to do?
I had so much confidence in you
So make it seem it was all just a dream
And what you once were you still are to me

How am I to know that it still goes
Darling, if you don't tell me now
You took my heart and tore it apart
I felt then it was near the end

Now it's just true - what am I to do?
I had so much confidence in you
So make it seem it was all just a dream
And what you once were you still are to me
