Olivia Newton-John - You Were Great, How Was I? Lyrics




I'll never learn
I cling to the past
I find so much there to lean on
But when I get lucky
I can even forget
Our now and forevers are gone

I know what you mean
I go there myself
When I feel the mood coming on
It comes on so easy
It's hard to believe
Our now and forevers are gone

When did we lose our starry eyes
The feeling's too strong to compromise
Something went wrong between hello and goodbye
Now it's too late
Love you were great, how was I?

I'm doing my best with somebody else
It's good to feel counted upon
It keeps me from sliding to where I forget
Our now and forevers are gone

When did we lose our starry eyes
The feeling's too strong to compromise
Something went wrong between hello and goodbye
Now it's too late
Love you were great, how was I?

    such an under-rated album. and she looked super sexy in the back of the cover artwork of this LP!

    Nice. Never heard this before. How lucky is Olivia to sing with the amazing Carl Wilson? Wishing you were here, Carl

    i love this song, played it over and over when i bought the record in 1985.
    too bad there isnt a video of it, the soul kiss video had vidoes from the album but not for this song.

  7. Ed Odonnell

    when Olivia takes her part of this song she melts me .. great combo with all the beach boy sound in the back ground !! RIP CARL

    Sukriye Olivia... First heard this on an obscure "Greatest Hits" cassette I picked up in the U.A.E. at the beginning of the 1st Gulf War. Loved the arrangement and always had a thing for ONJ. And yes, I still have that cassette!
