Lyrics

Doug Stone

If I had taken the time
To write down a few lines
Every time that you crossed this heart of mine
I'd put them all in a book
How much time would that have took
The words 'n years have a way of slipping back
Oh no! Too bad, there goes the chance that I had
I could have written a play so sweet and so funny
Given old Mr. Shakespeare a run for his money
Written the words to the prettiest tune
That would never leave a dry eye in the room
My only excuse for not doing enough
Well I was too busy being in love
Yes I was too busy being in love
Brand new phrases appear every time you are near
All these words you inspire after all these years
But I never reached for a pen
Break the mood that I'm in
Before I knew it the words were gone again
Oh no! Too bad, there goes the chance that I had
I could have written a play so sweet and so funny
Given old Mr. Shakespeare a run for his money
Written the words to the prettiest tune
That would never leave a dry eye in the room
My only excuse for not doing enough
I was too busy being in love
Yes I was too busy being in love
I could have written the part to make young lovers crazy
I could have written the movie for Hepburn and Tracy
The beautiful song and it starts with your name
Written my way into fortune and fame
But I have no regrets for not doing enough
Well I was too busy being in love
Yes I was too busy being in love
