YOU HAVE BEEN LOVED

There was a girl with an abundance of beauty
So over-endowed with grace and with warmth
One day she told me in a moment of candour
She’d never felt so unloved since the day she was born
“Hold on,” I said “what you’re saying is nonsense
And so sure I’m right that a bottle I’ll bet
That everyone here in this room thinks you’re groovy
Even that crowd that we’ve never met because



You have been loved but you just don’t know it
You have been loved but you just can’t see it



Now I have a talent for pointing out the obvious
And it’s clear to me now that you’re a genuine case
Somehow somewhere there’s something that’s missing
There’s a longing and a pain when I look through your face
But you look no further than the scars on your soul
And it really is time you attempted to see
How often you need to experience the bad times
To make you realise how the good times can be



You have been loved but you just don’t know it
You have been loved but you just can’t see it



Come over here and sit yourself down
And I’ll write you a song if it’ll make you feel good
I’ll buy you a beer and I’ll ply you with roses
I’ll try my hardest to make you feel as you should
I know it’s hard for you to sit there and smile
After all of the times you’ve been pushed and been shoved
But I’m quite prepared to do it myself
Just so I can prove to you that you have been loved

You have been loved but you just don’t know it
You have been loved but you just can’t see it

You have been loved but you just don’t know it
You have been loved but you just can’t see it
