Lightly Latin - 1966

Once I Loved ( Amor e Paz ) Perry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!

Once I loved . . .
and I gave so much love to this love
it was the world to me!
 
Once I cried . . .
at the thought I was foolish an' proud
and let you say goodbye!
 
Then, one day . . .
from my infinite sadness you came 
and brought me love again!
 
Now I know . . .
that no matter whatever befalls
I'll never let you go!
 
I will hold you close . . . make you stay
because love is the saddest thing 
when it goes away . . .
 
. . . love is the saddest thing 
when it goes away . . .
 
< instrumental break >
 
I will hold you close . . . make you stay
because love is the saddest thing 
when it goes away . . .
 
. . . love is the saddest thing 
when it goes away . . .
 
. . . when it goes away . . .
