Somewhere Round The Bend I'm going round in circles In and out of love Each time I come back around I see my old self from above I'm just climbing up a screw thread Never coming to an end So I know I'll see you again Somewhere round the bend I met the love of my life But we were far too young We said we'd meet ten years later But she never rung Then I got an invite to her wedding But I could not attend Maybe give it ten more years Somewhere round the bend Well I said I didn't love you But that just wasn't right Or just as true as to say That I loved you at first sight But I had to tell you this And I told you as a friend So you'd go your own way and I knew someday I'd see you Somewhere round the bend We said we'd never be together And we'd never be apart We'd just take our own paths Right from the start But now our story's being written on same page but by a different pen I know that the lines will cross Somewhere round the bend

No matter how sweet The love that flows Nature hangs her head Because she knows Even the gentlest breeze With time corrodes This love’s gone down A thousand roads Alone we both Thought we could stay 'Til love knocked on Our door one day Held out her hand And we both followed This love's gone down A thousand roads We hopped on board And she led us blind All our past lovers Swung on behind When would we buckle Under the load? This love's gone down A thousand roads No matter how sweet The love that flows Nature hangs her head Because she knows Even the gentlest breeze With time corrodes This love’s gone down A thousand roads We could fill a train With all our dreams But these old wheels Are out of steam Up until now They have never slowed This love's gone down A thousand roads In a far off mirror At the end of the trail Two dreamless beggars Growing frail We both returned The hearts we had borrowed This love's gone down A thousand roads No matter how sweet The love that flows Nature hangs her head Because she knows Even the gentlest breeze With time corrodes This love’s gone down A thousand roads

The tap left on and overflowing They knocked on the door but we kept going You asked me for the here and now I recited wedding vows You disappeared with another Just your dealer, not your lover Time the healer brought you round In my arms safe and sound Lovers old and lovers new Dancing the whole night and through They all knew the ship would sink But no one likes to think about it I danced with a stranger Across the very same spot on the floor Where we'd had our first kiss all those years before You sang “I’ll be seeing you, In all the old familiar places” The walls and the floor unchanged Around all these brand new faces Lovers old and lovers new... But now the walls are painted white Not a whisky stain in sight And like all lost places in this town Nobody cares what once went down there And if life is just a book we write Just a story we’d like to be in You can paint the walls and the ceilings We’ll keep the memories and the feelings Lovers old and lovers new Dancing the whole night and through They all knew the ship would sink But no one likes to think about it Lovers old and lovers new Dancing the whole night and through They all knew the ship would sink But no one likes to think about it Lovers old and lovers new Dancing the whole night and through We all knew the ship would sink But we can always think about it I'll be looking at the moon But I'll be seeing you
