To All the Girls I've Loved Before

Credit to Willie Nelson for the song of the same title

by Mark Polanis

To all the girls I've loved before

Who travelled in and out my door

I'm glad they came along

(because they taught me about pain and joy)

I dedicate this song

To all the girls I've loved before

To all the girls I once caressed

And may I say I've held the best

(or so I thought)

For helping me to grow

I owe a lot I know

(Or Do I?)

To all the girls I've loved before

The winds of change are always blowing

(Another Girl is always going)

And every time She tries to stay

The winds of change continue blowing

And they just carry her away

To all the girls who shared my life

Who now are someone else's wives

I'm glad they came along

(to teach me the meaning of pain)

I dedicate this song

(in all its sadness long)

To all the girls I've loved before

(Who never really loved me)

To all the girls who cared for me

(or so I thought)

Who filled my nights with ecstasy

(Hiding the fake feelings in their heart)

They live within my heart

(As Shattered as it is)

I'll always be a part

(Whether they want me to or not)

Of all the girls I've loved before

The winds of change are always blowing

And every time They try to stay

The winds of change continue blowing

And they just carry them away

In to the arms of a love pure and true

with someone who isn't me.

To all the girls I've loved before

I hope you're doing ok

As I sit here in the dark

and remember the truth

That I'm better off alone

At least then I can't be hurt.
