Mystery
All my life has been a mystery
You and I were never ever meant to be
That's why I call my love for you a mystery

Different country
You and I have always lived in a different country
And I know that airline tickets don't grown on a tree
So what kept us apart is plain for me to see
That much at least is not really a mystery

Estuary
I live in a houseboat on an estuary
Which is handy for my work with the Thames Water Authority
But I know that you would have found it insanitry
Insanitry

Taken a violent dislike to me
I'd be foolish to ignore the possibilities
That if we had ever actually met you might have hated me
Still, that's not the only problem that I can see

Dead since 1973
You've been dead now.. wait a minute let me see
Fifteen years come next January
As a human being you are history

So why do I still long for you?
Why is my love so strong for you?
Why did I write this song for you?
Well.. I guess it's just a mystery

Mystery

    General CommentI think he says 1993, not 1973. It has more sense if you consider those "fifteen years".
    Great song. Hugh Laurie is awesome. ^^
