Love Once Lost Lyrics Video Story

Many times in life after we have lived with, dealt with, and left behind strife or trauma, we find ourselves looking back at our experience and taking stock, as if we are looking at it through the eyes of a stranger. Or as if it is a fictional story. We know we lived it, but it’s difficult to remember the actual pain that we experienced, or the suffering. Women who have experienced childbirth know this. It is often said that if women could actually remember the pain of childbirth as it was while they endured it, they would never do it again. Yet they keep going back because the anticipation of the reward on the other side of that miraculous experience somehow trumps the fear or lessens the memory of pain.

In my life, I had moved on. I had grown. I had forgotten the pain, the suffering, the stress and the drama. I still loved her, but I was separated from it, like an outsider. Almost, not completely. I had gone to school to become a Mainframe Computer Operator and that was working quite well for me. I had a very nice girlfriend. Then one day I saw Sarah in a bank line when I went to cash my check.

Seeing her brought it all back, and I knew that I had to try one more time. So I contacted her parents and told them to pass a message on to her. I wrote her a letter and gave it to them. And then I moved on.

The letter told her all about how much I had lost when she left, and how much I’d learned and grown. Pretty much the chorus of the song sums it up:

‘Cause you and me babe, we let it happen so fast
Fell in love, took a chance
At the start we were happy

But just when it seemed you and I were falling apart
Everything was breaking our hearts
you just went and gave up too easy

If we struggled hard together to be
in love as we once used to be

Then our lives would be so beautiful now
So different, somehow
Love once lost can be found

So life went on and I went on and I forgot that I sent her that letter. Until a couple of more years later, but that’s a story for the final song.


Love Once Lost (Lyrics)
by Jerry Boutot

You didn’t know me
I came along
I found you
Ooh, I looked into your eyes and I saw you smile
We fell in love on such a warm, summer day
Then we took our love to a place where the sun would remind us of that day

In California we made our home and life was good
And then I hurt you very badly and you went away
And my heart has cried and my life’s been dying since that day
But I’ve prayed I’d make you mine again some day

‘Cause you and me babe, we let it happen so fast
Fell in love, took a chance
At the start we were happy
But just when it seemed you and I were falling apart
Everything was breaking our hearts you just went and gave up too easy
If we struggled hard together to be in love as we once used to be
Then our lives would be so beautiful now
So different, somehow
Love once lost can be found

Now time has gone and we are older and I have learned
I’ve realized what I have lost
I know I was wrong
And I know that I can make it up to you babe
If you ‘d give me one more chance, I know I can show you a better man

Let’s get together
Let’s end this nightmare
I love you
My heart is tired of this madness baby I need you
There is no reason why we can’t have a new love affair
‘Cause I believe we truly love each other

And you and me babe, we let it happen so fast
Fell in love, took a chance
At the start we were happy
But just when it seemed you and I were falling apart
Everything was breaking our hearts you just went and gave up too easy
If we struggled hard together to be in love as we once used to be
Then our lives would be so beautiful now
So different, somehow
Love once lost can be found
