There are times, times you’ll never forget In your heart, in your heart you will always live free of regret Because a love, a love like this never dies It just grows, grows and it strengthens over time Grows stronger with the years of our lives I was wrong when I said things never work out right I was wrong to believe that there’s no meaning to this life It’s just taken a couple of years Shedding my own tears To be able to wholeheartedly say to you We’ll never be alone You’ll never be alone
Endless juke joints and Valentino drag where dancers scraped the tears up off the streets dressed down in rags Running into the darkness, some hurt bad, some really dying At night sometimes it seemed you could hear the whole damn city crying Blame it on the lies that killed us Blame it on the truth that ran us down You can blame it all on me Terry It don’t matter to me now When the breakdown hit at midnight There was nothing left to say but I hated him and I hated you when you went away
It hadn’t been a day when everything had turned out right – She called me up and asked me to come over in the night, To make her cups of tea and listen quietly as she starts To list the latest list of bastards who have trampled on her heart.
I see her in the nightclubs, I see her in the bars, At rooftop after-parties, or crammed into friends’ cars, And we talk about the weather, and how she drowns her pain in drink, And I nod and never ever dare to tell her what I think.She summers by my seas But winters without me, And she cries into her tea That she’s secretly lonely. And oh me, what am I to do? It’s obvious to me, But she never seems to see That it’s not about the days when everything has turned out right, No it’s more about the moments when she calls me in the night To make her cups of tea and wash the weary worries from her head And then to draw the pain out slowly as I put her into bed.
And I slip this information Into all our conversations But she never seems to listen And she never seems to see.
