Almost you fell in love with me 
Almost you were my bride to be
But each promise that was made 
You have broken and betrayed
And left me with a faded memory
Almost my precious dreams came true 
Almost you whispered dear I do
But someone new came by and you left me here to cry 
Oh how close we were almost
Almost I heard the church bells ring 
Almost I heard the choir sing
But I hear now instead all those unkind words you said 
I remember every little thing
Almost your heart I did possess 
Almost you brought me happiness
My dreams just won't come true 
And there's nothing I can do
Oh how close we were almost 
Oh how close we were almost
