Whitney Houston: Didn't We Almost Have It All



In 1967 "Didn't We Almost Have It All" was written by Michael Masser and Will Jennings.

Didn't We Almost Have It All Lyrics

Remember when we held on in the rain
The nights we almost lost it
Once again we can take the night into tomorrow
Living on feelings
Touching you I feel it all again

Chorus:
Didn't we almost have it all
When love was all we had worth giving?
The ride with you was worth the fall my friend
Loving you makes life worth living
Didn't we almost have it all
The nights we held on till the morning
You know you'll never love that way again
Didn't we almost have it all

The way you used to touch me felt so fine
We kept our hearts together down the line
A moment in the soul can last forever
Comfort and keep us
Help me bring the feeling back again

(Chorus)

Bridge
Didn't we have the best of times
when love was young and new
couldn't we reach inside and find
the love of me and you
we'll never lose it again
cause once you know what love is you'll never let it end

Chorus:
Didn't we almost have it all
The night we held on till the morning
You know you'll never love that way again
Didn't we almost have it all
Didn't we almost have it all
(End)

Cm = C/GEb

F = F/AF

Bb = Bb/FBbD

Bb/A = A/FBbDF

Gm = G/ BbDGBb

Ebmaj7 = Eb/EbD

F/Eb = Eb/CFA

Gm7 = G/FAC

Cm7 = C/GBbEb

Eb/F = F/BbEbG

C/D = D/CEG

D = D/ADF#

Em7 = E/GBD

Am7 = A/GCE

D7sus = D/CEB

F7sus = F/EbFBbD

Bb(9) = Bb/DBb

This is such a pretty song played slowly with 4 beats to the measure in the Key of Bb. You can print  the music if the site is still up here.


Remembering Whitney. Hope you're having a great weekend. It's sunny here but my thoughts and prayers go out to the folks in Indiana at this time.

 Keep practicing and be blessed!
