  • And she pours herself another cup of coffee
    As she contemplates the stain across the wall
    and it's in between the cleaning and the washing
    That's when looking back's
    The hardest part of all

    And she always did her best to try and please him
    While he always did his best to make her cry
    And she got down on her knees to stop him leaving
    But he always knew one day he'd say goodbye

    Where are your friends
    Where are your children
    Is this your house
    Is this your home
    Does nothing ever last forever
    Does everybody sleep alone

    And he tears the business tags from his old suitcase
    As he packs away the pieces of his life
    They all love him but they always try to change him
    That's what happens when a girl becomes a wife

    And she pours herself another cup of coffee
    As the pictures leave a clean space on the wall
    and it's in between the leaving and the loving
    That's when looking back's
    The hardest part of all

    Where are your friends
    Where are your children
    Is this your house
    Is this your home
    Does nothing ever last forever
    Does everybody sleep alone

    Don't look back
    Don't give up
    Pour yourself another cup Writer/s: MIKE RUTHERFORD (GB), CHRISTOPHER NEIL

  • Mitchell from Liverpool, UkI have to say I'm surprised this wasn't a bigger hit; it's a nice emotive ballad and the lyrics help you picture the story in your head.
