I didn't know what time it was, then I met you

Oh what a lovely time it was, how sublime it was too!

I didn't know what day it was, you held my hand.

Warm like the month of May it was and I'll say it was grand.

Grand to be alive, to be young, to be mad, to be yours alone!

Grand to see your face, feel your touch, hear your voice say I'm all your own!

I didn't know what year it was, life was no prize.

I wanted love and here it was shining out of your eyes.

I'm wise and I know what time it is now.
