"I Guess You Had to Be There" as written by and Barbara Cloyd Jon Robbin....
Hello, honey, how was your day
Well, you're sure in a good mood tonight
Oh, by the way, I was downtown this afternoon
And I saw the most amazing sight
Through the window of a small cafe
I saw a man and a woman holdin' hands
And they looked so much in love it took my breath away
Can't you see it, don't you understand?

Well, I guess you had to be there
Yeah, you really had to be there
Some things you just can't explain
It's just not the same
I guess you had to be there

I just stood there my heart poundin'
I couldn't move, all I could do was stare
I kept rememberin' when we used to look like that
Two people with so much to share
They were talkin' and they were laughin'
Just like we used to do every day
And then he kissed her so tenderly
What's the matter, you don't have much to say

And as I watched you with your new love
I haven't seen you that happy in years
We've drifted so far apart and it's hard to admit it
But there's nothin' left for you here (so I guess)
