Well, the first time that I saw her
standing in the middle of the road,
Eyes as bright as Christmas lights,
Wearing someone else's clothes,
I did my best to ignore her,
Ignoring my best pretty soon.
We spent the night all tangled tight
In an armchair in my friend's front room.

I said, "Darling you know,
Darling, you know I can't stay.
'Cause I've given my heart and my worth
To a girl far away."
I felt weak as she kissed my cheek
And sighed when I heard her say,
"Never knew I could get my heart broken
In less than a day."

Oh, and the next time that I saw her,
Must have been a year or more,
Face stained with mascara,
Shivering outside my door.
I did my best to assure her,
But assurance isn't easy to give.
If you've never been sure of anything much,
You get less so the longer you live.
She said, ""Darling you know,
Darling, you know I can't stay.
'Cause I've given my heart and my worth
To a boy far away."
I spoke soft and pretended to cough,
Like I didn't care either way.
I never knew I could get my heart broken
In so many ways.

The last time that I saw her,
Standing in the pouring rain,
Hair a little shorter,
But everything else looked the same.
I could've told her that I adored her,
She could have said she felt the same way,
But we just smiled 'cause sometimes words
Aren't the right words to say.

We just smiled 'cause sometimes words
Aren't the right words to say.
