You Never Really Wanted Me Lyrics

(A. Rich)
You never really wanted me
Now I can see
Yes I can see
You took your love and ran away from me
You've gone and now you're back
What do you want from me?
Standing there
Please don't cry over me
After all you never cried for me before
Why start now?
Isn't it a little late for that now girl
Don't go feeling sorry for yourself
Remember I loved you
I loved you
I never knew the games we played
Had such a lasting grip upon the plans we made
I was busy laughing waiting for the day
Now our time is gone
And there's nothing left to say
Standing there
Please don't cry over me
After you never cried for me before...

This was written by Charlie's wife Ann Margaret Rich. Heartbreakingly, Charlie is singing the reactions of his wife to his own unfaithfulness. They had a long difficult marriage, but she was a force behind his eventual success. They put much of their relationship into their creative partnership to very strong effect.
