Only one way to describe, this is deceit I am hiding
Never been here before, never wanna see here again
I've strayed from a long term lover
And found greater lust from another
My conscience is keeping me awake and shouting at me all night

So I'll tell her the day after tomorrow, maybe today
So I'll tell her the day after tomorrow, or is that too late

Being loved is a big responsibility,
You can never give too much back
You know it's so easy to walk away and leave that lady flat
My life's feeling crowded with possessions, am I lucky or sad
Is it time to turn away and lose everything I had

So I'll tell her the day after tomorrow, maybe today
So I'll tell her the day after tomorrow, or is that too late

Moving in circles, decisions chasing me round and round
Why's life never easy, or do we make it hard for ourselves
And when we find love we need to look for something new
'Cos when it's all over, you always feel the need to be loved
Like she always loved you

    General CommentThis song is either about someone falling in love with someone else and trying to talk themselves into telling their significant other or it's about a guy having an affair and trying to get the guts to tell the person he is with.

    General CommentI remember when I first listened to this song, I was 14, it was on a Saturday in June in 1995 (I know showing my age now hehe) but I remember being so moved by this song that I think I cried for about 5 days every time I heard it, even though I didn't know the full extent of being in love and being betrayed by someone I love who had been unfaithful unfortuntley I did experience being cheated on by the love of my love when I was 24, and I remember listening to that song again when I had experienced it and it had the same effect.
