About This Song


In 1979 I was given a poem from a customer at a place I was playing at asking if I could put their words to music, they didn't want a writing credit and at 15 years old I wasn't fully aware of the whole song writing credits thing...

Suffice to say that years later when looking up the song title I found a poem that was uncredited with very similar lyrics...so likely the person that gave it to me did not write it.

I added a second verse and this recording is from 1991, when I was a "little" younger and I consider this the first song I ever wrote.

Feedback Requested


As usual any and all feedback welcome

It has a nice 60’s Ricky Nelson sound to it. I really like the line “look into someone’s heart and wish you were there”.
Thank you for sharing.

Hi Toni, the song has a nice nostalgic feeling. You can try to pitch it for TV/Movie, they are sometimes looking for stuff like this.

Did You Ever?

Written by Tony True

Verse 1
Did you ever love someone but knew they didn’t care?
Did you ever feel like crying but knew you’d get nowhere?
Did you ever look into their eyes and say a little prayer?
Did you ever look into their heart and wish that you were there?

Chorus
Did you ever feel like sighing
When the lights were way down low
Did you ever whisper “God I love you”
But never let them know
Don’t ever fall in love my friend cause you’ll find it doesn’t pay
It always causes hearts to break it happens every day

Verse 2
One day you’ll wake and the sun will shine
Next day you’ll wake up blue
And when it stops you’ll wonder why
Why they stopped loving you
You see my friend you’re losing them and no matter how you try
Love is fine but it hurts so much and the price you pay is high

Chorus
Did you ever feel like sighing
When the lights were way down low
Did you ever whisper “God I love you”
But never let them know
Don’t ever fall in love my friend cause you’ll find it doesn’t pay
It always causes hearts to break it happens every day
