The gentlest thought still brings a tear to my eye,
when summer reminds me of those halcyon days
Our pseudonyms scrawled all down the jubilee line
whilst down at the park our twisted bicycles lay
We were young and in love, holding hands in the sun,
in hindsight we were true romantics
Not a second of our life seemed wasted,
French kissing ‘till the light had faded

Tell me, tell me something I aint ever heard before
Tell me something that’ll make you love me more
Tell me something that’ll mean the world to me
Tell me, tell me

And now the swings are wrapped around
the poles where they once hung
And the sound of the ice cream van is sinister
And the tenement blocks where we both grew up
How quickly they became your prison cell
Even now you seem young to be pushing that pram
To be bringing up kids both with different dads
For some of us there’s no escaping
I still hear you saying

Tell me, tell me something I aint ever heard before
Tell me something that’ll make you love me more
Tell me something that’ll mean the world to me
Tell me, tell me

‘cos nothing feels like it feels the first time
Sacred moments like uncut diamonds
I still think of you there waiting
And still hear you saying

Tell me, tell me something I aint ever heard before
Tell me something that’ll make you love me more
Tell me something that’ll mean the world to me
Tell me, tell me

Tell me, tell me something I aint ever heard before
Tell me something that’ll make you love me more
Tell me something that’ll mean the world to me
Tell me, tell me
