this is the song I never wrote for you
I know I said I would
couldn't bring myself to start it then, but maybe now I should
I didn't need to write it then, when I was by your side
that's the irony of love, my dear
I never even tried

it begins with how I fell for you
saw myself in your eyes
I should have known how that would lead to my own sweet demise

well they said
"he's gonna get his fucking head kicked in
he's gonna die in a fucking loony bin"
darling, oh darling

this is the song I never wrote for you
I know I said I would
it might have turned out differently if things had worked out good
by your side the music rose, my heart would leap and bound
and the chilling fear that maybe I could lose what I had found
when the hate and hurt and poisoned tongues
rang out across the town
and then I guess the music stopped when you were sleeping 'round

"he's gonna get his fucking head kicked in
he's gonna die in a fucking loony bin"
darling, oh darling

this is the song I never wrote for you
I know I said I would
it makes no sense to start it now, it won't do any good
without them now but in my ears
a hangover subsides
you know I could have married you, I suppose we never tried

not gonna get my fucking head kicked in
not gonna die in a fucking loony bin
darling, oh darling
