It Will Never Be…

 

It Will Never Be The Same

Words & music by Frances Livings © 2013

You overheard that phone call
it was late at night
you heard me whisper longing words
and what you‘d sensed was right

I knew you had been crying
when I looked into your eyes
I am sorry – I have hurt you
there have been so many lies –

Now I feel so ashamed
it will never be the same
I have played the lovers’ game
now everything has changed

What I have done was so terribly wrong
yes, I’m the one to blame
that everything has changed
and it will never be the same

You punish me with silence
but watch each single move
asking, are you yearning for his touch?
or even telling me the truth?

Your hands are barely tangible
– more detection than touch
and instead of love-making
we lie at night like two matches in a box

But I feel so ashamed
it will never be the same
I have played the lovers’ game
now everything has changed

What I have done was so terribly wrong
yes, I’m the one to blame
that everything has changed
it will never be the same

My passion I had once
only reserved for you
but darling, you don’t kiss me now
like you used to do

Am I the one to blame?
That we will never be the same?
We both let so much slip away
And things just had to change

What I have done was terribly wrong
yes, I have caused this pain
everything is change
nothing stays the same
everything is change
nothing stays the same
everything is change
nothing stays the same
nothing, nothing, nothing.
