Anthony Phillips - I Saw You Today lyrics

I saw you today
And, through the distant years,
It all came back.

Two people, young and sheltered,
So unwary of the snares
We now know well.

You're now a woman
But still brown and very beautiful,
You haven't changed.

She took your place – oh, what a face,
Didn't think I needed you
But I was wrong.

She came and she went out
Upon a voyage, it seems
She's never coming back

For now you both are gone
It seems so long ago I was a
Happy man.

I saw you today
It didn't seem as if
You're coming back.

I saw myself today
It didn't seem as if
I'm coming back.

And lo upon the hills
I see a shadow pass
To the other side –
We must accept these things.

Oh, how I love you.
Oh, how I love you.
