Around us we see people who
Each other feel indifferent to
They were in love
Could that be us?

Love, it sometimes, it goes away
Could ours do that -- could ours not stay?
Could ours not stay?
Could ours not stay?

How it troubles me
What we have could be
Something that will not last
Something that won’t last

I find the thought one day I
May not care hard to bear
Hard to bear
Hard to bear

I hope that I’m, that I am
Worrying needlessly
But I always will
Love you near me

How it troubles me
What we have could be
Something that will not last
Something that won’t last

Around us we see people who
Each other feel indifferent to
They were in love

Could that be us?
Could that be us?

[One of the better unreleased songs by The Field Mice, available on YouTube from a John Peel session, as well as a live recording from a French show “The Black Sessions” (search for “ Field Mice Live Acoustique Black Session”) ]
