"You Were Never Mine" as written by and Benmont M./nicholson Tench....
I saw someone again today who remembered me and you
They asked all the same old questions, I gave the same excuse
They said, "What a shame, what a shame, to lose a love so fine"

But I never lost you, I never lost you
I never lost you, you were never mine

I kept on believing what I wanted to believe
The unspoken promises that you could never keep
But it's a sin, oh, it's a sin to tell yourself a lie

I never lost you, I never lost you
I never lost you, you were never mine

Did you give me all that you gave me just because I needed you
But when I needed, all your love completely was it more than you could do

Sometimes deep in the night when I hold you in my dreams
I get lost in your loving touch, baby, I can't believe how real it seems
And I know, yes I know, I'll have you till the end of time

'Cause I never lost you, I never really lost you
I never lost you 'cause you were never mine
I never lost you, I never really lost you
How could I lose you, you were never mine
