It Was I

Written by Gary Paxton.

Youíre telling everybody Iím the one
To blame for all the wrong that you have done.
The day that you walked out and left, didnít say goodbye.
Who was left alone to sit and cry?
It was I; it was I.

I gave you all the love I ever had,
The only things I got from you were bad,
The times you didnít show up,
The times you didnít call,
Who was left alone with it all?
It was I; it was I.

My love was always yours to treasure and to hold.
If you let a love go by, it will soon grow cold.
Temptation is too strong to hide,
Are you really satisfied
With our love the way it is?
Let me tell you how it is.

Please come back and try to start anew
I know that itís the proper thing to do,
Darliní if we make up
I know weíll never break up.
Then I know itís only me and you,
Me and you.
