a sad fact widely known
the most impassionate song, to a lonely soul is so easily outgrown
but don’t forget the songs that made you smile
and the songs that made you cry

when you lay in awe on the bedroom floor
And said : oh, oh, smother me mother.

the passing of time and all of its crimes
is making me sad again
the passing of time and all of its sickening crimes
is making me sad again
but don’t forget the songs that made you cry
and the songs that saved your life
yes, you’re older now
and you’re a clever swine
but they were the only ones who ever stood by you

the passing of time leaves empty lives waiting to be filled
the passing of time leaves empty lives waiting to be filled
i’m here with a cause
i’m holding the torch
in the corner of your room – can you hear me?

and when you’re dancing and laughing and finally living
hear my voice in your head and think of me kindly

do you
love me like you used to?
