Many dark and dreary days have gone and passed me by
Since you took my heart and dashed it to the ground.
Many long and lonely nights I'd lie and wonder why
You could take your love and spread it all around.

And that's the bread that you cast upon the waters.
Doing all the heartless things you swore you'd never do.
And the bread that you cast upon the waters
Will come floating back to you.

So you keep right on a dancing underneath them neon lights,
But you'll find out the piper must be paid.
And you'll find out just how it feels to reach out in the night
And feel the one you reach for turn away.

And that's the bread that you cast upon the waters...
Doing all the heartless things you swore you'd never do.
And the bread that you cast upon the waters,
Will come floating back to you.

Many dark and dreary days you'll look up at the sky
And wonder where did all your sunshine go,
And many long and lonely nights you'll lie and wonder why
You once had a love like mine and you let it go.

And that's the bread that you cast upon the waters...
Doing all the heartless things you swore you'd never do,
And the bread that you cast upon the waters
Will come floating back to you.
