BURT BACHARACH lyrics - The Last Time I Saw My Heart

BURT BACHARACH
"The Last Time I Saw My Heart"

The last time I saw my heart
Was on the way up to your lips
As I was lost in your embrace
I found myself somewhere in space
When I came down to earth again my heart was gone

The last time I saw my heart
I know that I was in your arms
And as we kissed I closed my eyes
And stumbled in to Paradise
When I returned from Paradise my heart was gone

Why did you leave
Where did you go
I can't believe
You'd decieve someone who needs you so

Oh come back, I beg of you
And keep my heart, I want you to
Though I can't live without my heart
I'll die if we remain apart
The last time I saw my heart I fell in love
The last time I saw my heart I fell in love
