"Didn't We Almost Have It All" as written by Will Jennings and Michael Masser....
Remember when we held on in the rain
The night we almost lost it
Once again we can take the night into tomorrow
Living on feelings
Touching you I feel it all again

Didn't we almost have it all
When love was all we had worth giving?
The ride with you was worth the fall my friend
Loving you makes life worth living
Didn't we almost have it all
The night we held on till the morning
You know you'll never love that way again
Didn't we almost have it all

The way you used to touch me felt so fine
We kept our hearts together down the line
A moment in the soul can last forever
Comfort and keep us
Help me bring the feeling back again

Didn't we almost have it all
When love was all we had worth giving?
The ride with you was worth the fall my friend
Loving you makes life worth living
Didn't we almost have it all
The night we held on till the morning
You know you'll never love that way again
Didn't we almost have it all

Didn't we have the best of times
When love was young and new?
Couldn't we reach inside and find
The world of me and you?
We'll never lose it again
'Cause once you know what love is
You never let it end

Didn't we almost have it all
When love was all we had worth giving?
The ride with you was worth the fall my friend
Loving you makes life worth living

Didn't we almost have it all
The night we held on till the morning
You know you'll never love that way again
Didn't we almost have it all

    General Commentthis is my favourite whitney houston song...to me it's a first love break up song ...most first serious relationships end and the relationships that follow are always a bit more cautious. i think it's a really lovely song hehe

    General CommentTo me this song about i relationship that was so great it was near perfect. The love was so good never thought you could live without them. The love was so good it was worth it . Even thou it failed. You know if both just reach down and tried harder you could have been together forever. but you didn't . So know your saying ....Didn't we almost have it all.

    General CommentAs you guys said, the song it about the first love, the perfect one where you allow yourself to feel all, you live it plenty (the nights we lost it, held in the rain, living on feelings, When love was all we had worth giving
    The ride with you was worth the fall,my friend
    Loving you makes life worth living)

    but their relationthip failed, and still she or both of them have the sensation that they almost have it all. If they would made it till the end together, they would have it all

    it is exactly the way I'm feeling now. We had everything to have it all...

    General CommentObviously about a love that has ended, at least in the heart of one. I'm surprised there are no comments since Whitney's voice is so beautiful in this track. She had something (raw emotion) that most singers lack.
