L Is For Lover

Album: L Is For Lover (1986)
  • Don't wait for your love
    To come from tomorrow
    Don't wait for your love
    To come from yesterday
    Your heart better skip a
    Beat tomorrow
    Your heart better jump
    A beat from yesterday
    Don't wait for the
    Love you lost
    When someone needs
    The love that you have
    Don't ache for the
    Love you need
    Someone somewhere
    wants what you've got

    Maybe she's looking
    For you in London
    L is for lover
    Maybe she's looking
    For you in Boston
    O is for an offer
    Maybe she's looking
    For you in Houston
    V you got to venture
    Maybe she's looking
    For you in Kingston
    E maybe forever

    Don't wait for your mum
    To lesson your sorrow
    Don't wait for the crown
    To bring you brighter days
    Your heart better skip
    A beat to tomorrow
    Your heart better jump
    A beat from yesterday
    Don't wait for the love you lost
    When someone needs
    The love that you have
    Don't ache for the love you need
    Someone somewhere
    wants what you've got
    Don't cry for the love you lost
    When someone needs
    the love that you have
    Don't sigh for the love you need
    Someone somewhere
    wants what you've got

    Do not cry for the love you lost
    Do not cry for the love you need
    Do not mourn for the love you lost
    Don't mourn for the love you need
    Do not cry for the love you lost
    Do not ache for the love you need
    Do not mourn for the love you lost
    Don't mourn for the love you need


    Maybe she's looking for you in Moscow
    L is for lover
    Looking for you in Glasgow
    O is for an offer
    Maybe she's looking for you in Rio
    V you got to venture
    Maybe she's looking for you in Tokyo
    E maybe forever
    Maybe she's looking for you in Sydney
    L is for lover
    Maybe she's looking for you in Philly
    O is for an offer
    Maybe she's looking for you in Lisbon
    V you got to venture
    Maybe she's looking for you in Brooklyn
    E maybe forever Writer/s: DAVID GAMSON, DAVID H. GAMSON, GREEN GARTSIDE
