When morning comes to town
I'll be moving on
When evening comes back 'round
I'll be somewhere alone
Somewhere far away
What about you?
All things have to end
They have to and they do
And they do

We started to believe
To one another we belong
We know that isn't so
You're not mine, I am not yours
I never wanted this
For us to carry on
Knowing that it is
In no way what we want
What we want

This way it is the way
No rain or cutting words
I'm happy to go out like this
If happy is the word

I'll think of you always
For you know as well as I
That for you I would have
Died and would still die
Would still die

When morning comes to town
Something once precious will
End for all of time
Because of how we feel
But better that than have
Us afraid to be alone
Not saying anything
Knowing something's wrong
Something's wrong

This way it is the way
No rain or cutting words
I'm happy to go out like this
If happy is the word

    General CommentNot sure the above is quite right (and obviously it's missing some lines). I hear:

    When morning comes to town
    I'll be moving on
    When evening comes back 'round
    I'll be somewhere alone
    Somewhere far away
    Well, what about you?
    All things have to end
    They have to and they do
    And they do

    We've started to believe
    To one another we belong
    We know that isn't so
    You're not mine, I am not yours
    I never wanted this
    For us to carry on
    Knowing that it is
    In no way what we want
    What we want

    This way it is the way no rain of cutting words
    I'm happy to go out like this
    If happy is the word

    I'll think of you always
    For you know it as well as I
    That for you I would have
    Died and would still die
    Would still die

    When morning comes to town
    Something once precious will
    End for all of time
    Because of how we feel
    But better that than have
    Us afraid to be alone
    Not saying anything
    Knowing something's wrong
    Something's wrong

    This way it is the way no rain of cutting words
    I'm happy to go out like this
    If happy is the word
