The Losing End (When You're On)

Album: Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere (1969)
  • I went into town to see you yesterday but you were not home
    So I talked to some old friends for a while before I wandered off alone

    It's so hard for me now
    But I'll make it somehow
    Though I know I'll never be the same
    Won't you ever change your ways
    It's so hard to make love pay
    When you're on the losing end
    And I feel that way again

    Well, I miss you more than ever
    Since you've gone I can hardly maintain
    Things are different round here
    Every night, my tears fall down like rain

    It's so hard for me now
    But I'll make it somehow
    Though I know I'll never be the same
    Won't you ever change your ways
    It's so hard to make love pay
    When you're on the losing end
    And I feel that way again
