Lyrics

When I first saw her face
She really took my breath away
I know it’s hard to believe
That was only yesterday

Oh what a joy
Saw the light in her eyes
Like a bird I was hypnotised

Only yesterday she disappeared
Without leaving a trace
Always a fool for a pretty face

She looked at me as she spoke
But I never heard a word she said to me
I couldn’t move I didn’t care
But the truth it was plain to see

In front of her
By the light in her eyes
Disguised where she wanted to be

Only yesterday she disappeared
Without leaving a trace
I’m holding on to that bitter taste
Always a fool for a pretty face

She was everything to me
The look of love she gave to me
But nothing’s simple anymore
I’ve known her kind before

Little rocks and bigger dreams
Than I ever knew she had
But now I know
There’s not a lot I could have done
To keep her close to me Now the time has come

Only yesterday she disappeared
Without leaving a trace
I’m holding on to that bitter taste
Glad that I had so much time to waste
Always a fool for a pretty face

She disappeared without leaving a trace Always a fool…
