He Asked Me

He asked me to be there

I couldn’t say no

He asked for my love

I couldn’t say no


He told me it was only

One of those things

You read about in novels

The loveless life

The broken hearts

And the longing for an old flame


He asked me to be there

I couldn’t say no

He asked for my love

I couldn’t say no


We once were lovers

And now dear friends

But the lines would blur

That early September morning

When he felt lost

And I took a risk


He asked me to be there

I couldn’t say no

He asked for my love

I couldn’t say no


Sharing a moment

That will forever be

Held in my heart

Like a fantasy

One day

One chance


He asked me to be there

I didn’t say no

He asked for my love

I didn’t say no

Because I love him

(I love him so)

(I love him)
