Joe Diffie — Never Mine To Lose lyrics

You were the ocean
I was the sand on the shore
Each time you touched me
You left me longing for more
But I knew I'd never hold you here
A fleeting moment was all we'd share

So why do I feel the way I do
Why is my time spent missing you
Why does it feel like I've lost
The only love I knew
When you were never mine to lose

It's not a possession
Passion it comes and goes
Just like the ocean
Hearts have their ebb and flow
And I know I can't turn the tide
I can't feed the sea once the river's dried

So why do I feel the way I do
Why is my time spent missing you
Why does it feel like I've lost
The only love I knew
When you were never mine to lose

Did I let the moonlight and your memory
Cast a spell on me

So why do I feel the way I do
Why is my time spent missing you
Why does it feel like I've lost
The only love I knew
When you were never mine to lose
