You Came

Album: Closer (1988)
Charted: 3 41
  • Someone I know is staring at me
    And when I look into her eyes
    I see a girl that I used to be
    I hardly recognize
    'cause in the space of a year
    I've watched the old me disappear
    All of the things I once held precious
    Just don't mean anything anymore
    'cause suddenly

    You came, and changed the way I feel
    No one could love you more
    Because you came and turned my life around
    No one could take your place

    I've never felt good with permanent things
    Now I don't want anything to change
    You can't imagine the joy you bring
    My life won't be the same
    And I'll be there when you call
    I'll pick you up if you should fall
    'cause I have never felt such inspiration
    Nobody else ever gave me more because

    You came, and changed the way I feel
    No one could love you more
    Because you came and turned my life around
    No one could take your place

    I watch you sleep in the still of the night
    You look so pretty when you dream
    So many people just go through life
    Holding back, they don't say what they mean
    But it's easy for me
    Since you came
    No one could love you more
    Because you came and turned my life around
    No one could take your place
    You came, and changed the way I feel
    No one could love you more
    Because you came and turned my life around
    No one could take your place Writer/s: KIM WILDE, RICK WILDE

  • Lee from Borehamwood, United KingdomI love how getting to #41 in the US is considered a flop!
  • Eugene from Minneapolis, MnI'll leave a note! This was huge in Europe but it flopped in the USA peaking at #41 on the Billboard Hot 100. You'd think that a Shep Pettibone single remix would do the trick, but we were sadly mistaken.
