A version of this song was recorded for thewildhoneypie.com's "Buzzsessions" and can be found here:...
Well Davey, don't you understand?
That all her tears,
No, they are not for me.
Or for all the years,
That I have stood by her side.
Lord knows I tried...
No, not even one of those tears,
For me, she cries.

No, I am not perfect,
Not even close.
No, I am not the one,
That her heart chose.
And I haven't been alone,
I needed love.
You will never be alone,
For you have my love enough to hold back the fires,
That raged and burned.
You placed our trust upon the pyre.
Let it be known,
That I was always on your side.
Let it be known,
That you were always on my mind.

Won't be comin' home tonight..

    General CommentI think the Davey part is UK slang and not referring to a third party. Might be obvious, but I originally thought the song was more conversational and found it odd when it switched to "you" and didn't sound like it was referring to this "Davey" character :)
