"While You Loved Me" as written by Marty Dodson, Kim Williams and Danny Wells....
If I ever write the story of my life
Don't be surprised if you're where it begins
Girl, I'd have to dedicate every line on every page
To the memories we made, while you loved me

I was born the day you kissed me
And I died inside the night you left me
But I lived, oh how I lived
(I lived) While you loved me

I'd start with chapter one, love innocent and young
As the morning sun on a new day
Even though I know the end, Well I'd do it all again
'Cause I got a lifetime in, while you loved me

I was born the day you kissed me
And I died inside the night you left me
But I lived, oh how I lived
(I lived) While you loved me

I was born the day you kissed me
And I died inside the night you left me
But I lived, oh how I lived
(I lived) While you loved me

I was born the day you kissed me
And I died inside the night you left me
But I lived, oh how I lived
(I lived) While you loved me

    General CommentWonderful Song, Loving someone so totally and so committed that it changes your life. However taken away, there is only the good things left. Remembering lost love is haunting.

    My InterpretationThe singer thinks that the time he spent in this relationship was his entire life, (he was "born" when they met and "died" when they broke up)and he lived "while she loved him".
