UNTIL I SAW YOUR FACE - a love song lyric

I never gave much thought to love

It was a stranger to my heart

I never knew what life could be

And I thought I was smart!


I didn't care that love wasn't there

What you don't have you don't miss

I didn't know what it was to share

The commitment in a kiss


I never gave love the time of day

Or the things that lovers do

I never learnt how to act that way

How little this guy knew


I didn't mind that I didn't find

What other hearts hungered for

Love was a caller disinclined

To come knocking at my locked door


But I see now that I was searching

All the time and every place

But I never knew what love looked like

Until I saw your face

Thanks for the kind comments.
Harry - my only flirtation with an instrument
was with a ukulele years ago. But I have found
that being able to write "in rhythm" can in
itself create a tune and this is "transcribed"
for song recording purposes.
JC - I will see if I can upload the song.

I get very jealous of those on here who can play instruments (you don`t know how lucky you are) I agree with John, this sounds like a winner.

Great theme of 'you don't miss what you never had. I especially like the lines

'Love was a caller disinclined

To come knocking at my locked door'
