I Have Let Love Pass Me By

You told me that your name was Maria,
And that you came
From the Netherlands,
But you looked more like a Latina,
With flowing dark hair, maybe a natural tan,

I was in love,
So much in love,
But I let love pass me by,
All through my life,
So much of my life, I have let love pass me by.

You left me with a casual ‘I’ll see you’,
But I looked for you
All over London town,
It’s as if I had been paralysed with fear,
Did I see you on the underground?

I was in love,
So much in love,
But I let love pass me by,
All through my life,
So much of my life, I have let love pass me by.
