I watch the light from your cigarette burn out into white-
I’m running out of time,
Thinking you once said
“Baby, we’re in the army now, an army made of two- just me and you”…

But you’re all I got and I just won’t give that up
Yeah you’re all I got-
Ain’t that worth a shot?

It’s never easy getting down to it,
Never easy getting round to it-
When you’re ready give the sign-
I’ll be there at the starting line.
It’s never easy getting down to it,
Never easy getting round to it-
When you’re ready give the sign-
I’ll be there at the starting line.

No-one knows what ‘forever’ means, they say it anyway
To make you stay.
Well you should know, I cross my heart and I close my eyes
Promises are lies,
We break them every time.

But you’re all I got and I just won’t give that up
Yeah you’re all I got-
Ain’t that worth a shot?

It’s never easy getting down to it,
Never easy getting round to it-
When you’re ready give the sign-
I’ll be there at the starting line.
It’s never easy getting down to it,
Never easy getting round to it-
When you’re ready give the sign-
I’ll be there at the starting line.
