lyrics

My sweetheart and me

I remember when we first met,
Right down to the clothes that she wore,
The first words that we shared,
Feeling my heart race as she crossed the floor
And I recall the first kiss
Few hours after we’d first spoke
The taste upon her lips
And the longing it left when it broke.

So what will become
Of my sweetheart and me
We had it worked out
Then entered doubts
Now it’s coming apart at the seams
And I still wait here
For her

We used to be so in love
I thought nothing would tear us apart
But life and time took their toll
And the taxman sure played his part
Tried to live on a dream but
Our dreams couldn’t pay the rent
When I gambled that we’d make it,
I just chanced away our last few pence

So what will become
Of my sweetheart and me
We had it worked out
Then entered doubts
Now it’s coming apart at the seams
And I still wait here.
I’m still waiting.
