lyrics

I hear you say you’re going to leave me
But it’s me that you want to be near
You say, “I wish I could stay; please believe me”
I guess you guess that’s what I want to hear
You tells me that your heart is a burden
That will push and pull you each and every way
Well, me, I know that nothing is certain
I’m just hanging on to each and every day
The hurt I guess I’m going to uncover
Won’t be dealt with in despair or dismay
For though it’s true to say that I was your lover
I never quite loved you that way

I hear you say you’re going to miss me
You’ll ache and you’ll twist for my touch
You’ll long for to hold and for to kiss me
Well words, on their own, don’t mean much
I’m not saying I don’t understand your reasons
Just remember that the choice was always yours
And, no, it don’t amount to treachery or treason
There’s nothing to apologise for
I don’t expect to quickly recover
At least not tomorrow or today
But though it’s true to say that I was your lover
I never quite loved you that way

But if they tell me that she now loves another
I can’t be sure I will so easily say
Though it’s true to say that I was your lover
I never quite loved you that way

Though it’s true to say that I was your lover
I never quite loved you that way
Because of all the things I like to keep inside
You know I never quite loved you that way
Though it’s true to say that I was your lover
I never quite loved you that way
