  • His body loved her
    His mind was set on other things
    Keep your face out of sight
    And your thoughts to yourself
    And this went on for several nights
    Festering in silence, growing in the dark

    And this they saw as love
    Love
    So sad to see
    They suffocate at night
    Oh this they saw as love
    Love
    So sad to see
    To see it slowly die

    She met his wishes
    He found that he had changed his mind
    Now the fit is too tight
    And the bedroom too warm
    The days are filled with things to do
    Night-time lies so hollow and memories betray

    Oh memories of love
    Love
    So sad to see
    They suffocate at night
    Those memories of love
    Love
    So sad to see
    To see it slowly die

    Two years have passed
    Two years of emptiness inside
    And the grey skies above
    Just show how far I went wrong
    I wonder if she's living there
    The way that I recall
    The way I'll always think of you
    And when I think of you

    I think of love
    Love
    So sad to see
    They suffocate at night
    You know I think of love
    Love
    So sad to see
    To see it slowly die

    I wrote you a letter
    I threw it away
    I wrote you a letter
    I threw it away
    I need her
    I know I don't need her
    I need her
    Oh
