Cause We've Ended As Lovers

Album: Blow By Blow (1975)
  • Sneaking kisses in the hall
    Parting love notes are on the wall
    Been each other's all and all each day
    Lovers walking in the rain
    So close we felt each other's pain
    But now you say that love has died away
    'Cause we've ended now as lovers
    Doesn't mean that we each other can't be friends
    'Cause we've ended now as lovers
    Does our love for one another have to end
    I remember teaching you

    On piano 'Tea for Two'
    And how playing it wrong I kissed your hand
    But when our love has gone and passed
    Why does the good exceed the bad
    Well that's one thing I'll never understand
    'Cause I remember us at class
    You were always the one to pass
    And gave me answers right to see me through
    But that was more than years ago
    And who will love me I don't know
    It's sad for sure but true it won't be you

  • Rajko N. Dimitrijevic from Beograd SerbiaMy fav for 45 yrs now!
  • Jorge from Bronx, NyThis album came to by working in MSG here in NYC,whoever it belonged to,left two crates of rock LP's this was one,wow i was impressed,this song,Freeway jam and Constipated Duck were my favorites.
  • Ken from Fort Collins, CoActually, I believe it was first sung on the album "Stevie Wonder presents Syreeta" which came out in 1974. Jeff Beck then included the song on the album of the same name as the haunting instrumental that has become even more famous.
  • Ron from Los Angeles, CaYou got it half right Bill. Stevie Wonder wrote the song originally for his ex-wife Syreeta for an album (a very personal one for them) and her version was never released. The song does have lyrics to it too. Stevie wrote Thelonius Funk for Jeff on the Blow by Blow album too.
  • Adrian from Brookings, SdAwesome song on an even more awesome album that's top five of all time in my opinion. I was hardcore into the album when I was 13 and oddly enough had this song stuck in my head the entire time my family and I were vacationing in Disney World. Completely unrelated I'm sure, but still interesting to no one else but me. ;-)
  • Goldfish from , Wiabsolutely gorgeous solo that tells all the story. needs no lyrics

The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
