read between the lines lyrics – carole king

i wrote you a letter the other day
and i told you i was happy for you
and your new love
now there was much more
i wanted to say
but it’s hard for me to get over
my last bit of pride

but if you read between the lines
you will know that i still love you
oh, and i’ll love you forever
and always

when we were together
i never thought
you would ever be anything else
but a friend and a true love
but time has thrown it’s net
and now i’m caught
and i’m helpless to tell you
how much i miss you by my side

but if you read between the lines
you will know that i still love you
oh, and i’ll love you forever
and always

do you remember smiling at me
when i looked at you
and i first saw you
and i wanted you
and you wanted me
but it’s over now and i just can’t see
how i’m gonna live without you

but if you read between the lines
you will know that i still love you
oh, and i’ll love you forever
and always
