Forever

  • I know I've had you troubled
    And I know I've seared your mind
    But you know that I love you
    And that our love's not blind
    I'm sure my dreams lie with you
    But I've many more besides
    And if I can't see them through
    Our love will slowly die

    So if you doubt for the time that you're spending
    And if you doubt for the love in your heart
    Think of London and the girl you're returning
    And the days you defend will turn to gold

    So love with your eyes
    Love with your mind
    Love with your, dare I say forever
    Do it for yourself
    Do it for the girl
    Do it for your, dare I say forever

    And I've known pious women
    Who have lead such secret lives
    Shameless in the dark, so shameful in the light
    And you may not be pious and I may not be saved
    But we could live quite happily and quietly unfazed

    So if you doubt for the time that you're spending
    And if you doubt for the love in your heart
    Think of London and the girl you're returning
    And the days you defend will turn to gold

    So love with your eyes
    Love with your mind
    Love with your, dare I say forever
    Do it for yourself
    Do it for the girl
    Do it for your, dare I say forever

    I was dreaming of the Liffey
    I was thinking of the Thames
    And now the east river flows by to the same end
    Are we too sentimental to not look back and stare?

    So love with your eyes
    Love with your mind
    Love with your, dare I say forever
    Do it for yourself
    Do it for the girl
    Do it for your, dare I say forever Writer/s: Benjamin Walter David Lovett, Edward James Milton Dwane, Marcus Oliver Johnstone Mumford, Winston Aubrey Aladar Marshall
