NOTHING LIKE YOU'VE EVER KNOWN
from "Tell Me On A Sunday" 1979
(Andrew Lloyd Webber (m) Don Black (l) )
as recorded by Marti Webb
with The London Philharmonic Orchestra
Nothing like you've ever known,
That's the life I thought that I was gonna show you!
Made you choose her love or mine,
That's one "happy ever after" that I owe you!
Always looking at your watch,
I wanted to spend more time than twelve to two Loving you!
And nothing like we ever dreamed,
I'd have sworn that was the life we would be living.
We were both expecting more
And we can't give any more than we are giving!
That is all it was, you know!
It would have been better
If we stayed as we used to be!
But nothing like you've ever known,
That is how I thought all your tomorrows would be.
Every day I look at you,
And I stop and think how happy you still could be!
