I fell in love with a man who was twice my age and half my size
He had wisdom lines down through his cheeks and wrinkles around his eyes
I told him I would love him with abandon and I promised him love for life
But when he said that I'd better grow up before my promises became a lie

And I said

Didn't you ever love somebody
Didn't you ever love
Oh didn't you ever love somebody
Didn't you ever love

Well in some ways that man was right but in others he was wrong
I've had many friends and lovers but nothing quite as strong
And the years are always teaching me that obsession never lasts
But I ask too many questions for woman with a past

And I say

Didn't you ever love somebody
Didn't you ever love
Oh didn't you ever love somebody
Didn't you ever love
Didnít you ever, didnít you ever
Didnít you ever love somebody
Didn't you ever love somebody
Didn't you ever love somebody
Didn't you ever love

I still get excited when I fly and go to another land
And I still believe that love will come and take by the hand
And lead where forever meets adventure without care
And if you try and tell me different I'm gonna tell you don't dare

I'm gonna say, didn't you now, hey didn't you

Didn't you ever love somebody
Didn't you ever love
Oh didn't you ever love somebody
Didn't you ever love
Didnít you ever, didnít you ever
Didnít you ever love
Didn't you ever love somebody
Didnít you ever love
Didn't you ever love somebody
Didn't you ever love
