i feel those days without end
when we used to be friends
those summer days were spent
in search of hope and happiness

we used to while away our days
in a beautiful haze
I guess I knew one day
that you'd be moving long away

you said go back to your dream
back to your wilderness
go back along the walk
maybe you'll find some happiness

I wept a thousand tears for you
for my love that came true
and soon i realized
i'd always dreamt it'd come to this

you know that time passes by
and that our lives have changed
but our love was special
our love was strange

in the ...
in time we depend
except when I think about the time
that we used to be friends

we were friends
we were friends

so go back to your dreams
back to your wilderness
go back along the walk
maybe you'll find some happiness

I wept a thousand tears for you
for my love that came true
and soon i realized
I'd always dreamt it'd come to this

    General CommentI don't know where these lyrics are from, whether they're actually the official lyrics or not, but I always heard the line written here as: 'For my love that came true' as: 'For my love for you'd been true'... I like that better anyway!

    General CommentI always heard that line as "For my love had been true". It's the past tense referring to why she would weep a thousand tears.

    Also, the missing piece here "in the ... in time we depend " I think should say "And although my heart broke, in time it did mend". That's how I hear it, anyway, and following it up with "except when I think about..." means that she's healed, until she thinks about their relationship, and then she's heartbroken again.

    Great song, anyway. The first one I heard by them, and still my favourite.
