Steve Winwood It Was Happiness Lyrics

We had the stars-they kept shining

Where they led us we followed

Two for love-wandering

I look back-here’s what I see

We were outside-there was Paris-it was raining

And we felt everything

In a crowded street in London-happiness

And we were so alive

And your soul was a wide and deep blue sea

I would drown, and you’d rescue me

And we lived our life like a story

Clear to the ending

It was happiness-so clear-happiness

Happiness-no tears-happiness

Can’t keep time from its running

Soon the best times are over

Photographs-hold me

And I see how good we were

There was that day out in Carmel, California

With no clothes in the sun

In a crowded street in London-happiness

And then it all goes by

So I drink to the past and what still will be

One day I’ll be a memory

But I lived my life like a story

Too bad there’s an ending
