i never lost you lyrics – john berry

(chuck jones)

if i had a nickle
for every nickle i’ve had
i’d be rich now
but they tempt and they tickle
they trickle right out of my hands
like love somehow
i think of the hearache, the pain, and the cost
the friends and the fortunes i’ve gained and i’ve lost

but i never lost you
no, i never lost you
i don’t know how i’ve managed to hold on to
something so true
but i never lost you

some things were stolen
others were simply misplaced
and unrecovered
like undying loyalty
conviction and truth and faith
in another
i just keep letting it go til it’s gone
til all i have left is the one who held on

but i never lost you
no, i never lost you
lost everything else, i even lost myself
a time or two
but i never lost you

but i never lost you
no, i never lost you
i don’t know how i’ve managed to hold on to
something so true
but i never lost you
