IT SURE WORKED OUT FOR ME

He never knew that you were perfect,
He never knew you were a dream.
He never knew you were an angel,
Nobody should have treated you so mean,
It's so clear you're something special,
Too bad for him, he couldn't see.
He may never know the cost of the love he lost,
But it sure worked out for me.

The only thing he ever did was take everything,
And all you ever did was give,
I sat on the sidelines and I saw your spirit break,
And Baby, that ain't no way to live.

He never knew that you were perfect,
He never knew you were a dream.
He never knew you were an angel,
Nobody should have treated you so mean,
It's so clear you're something special,
Too bad for him, he couldn't see.
He may never know the cost of the love he lost,
But it sure worked out for me.

I'm so glad to have this chance to make you happy,
I love workin' on your smile,
Seems we've been forever on this journey,
But your worth every minute and every mile.

I always knew that you were perfect,
I always knew you were a dream.
Already knew you were an angel,
Disguised in old tee shirts and jeans,
It's so clear you're something special,
Too bad for him, he couldn't see.
He may never know the cost of what he lost,
But it sure worked out for me.
He may never know the cost of the love he lost,
But it sure worked out for me.
