I Was the One

I Was the One

Elvis Presley

I was the one who taught her to kiss
The way that she kisses you now
And you know the way she touches your cheek
Well, I taught her how

I was the one who taught her to cry
When she wants you under her spell
The sight of her tears drives you out of your mind
I taught her so well

And then one day
I had my love as perfect as could be
She lived, she loved, she laughed, she cried
And it was all for me

I'll never know who taught her to lie
Now that it's over and done
Who learned the lesson when she broke my heart?
I was the one

And then one day
I had my love as perfect as could be
She lived, she loved, she laughed, she cried
And it was all for me

I'll never know who taught her to lie
Now that it's over and done
Who learned the lesson when she broke my heart?
I was the one
