  • We didn't think it'd last beyond summer
    I met her father she met my mother
    We didn't have anywhere else to go
    She said to me when we grow older
    Will we still need young love on
    Our shoulders
    Does it just fade away
    Will we ever know?

    She touched my face and called me
    Her lover
    I never thought that I'd need another

    [Chorus:]
    Your cool suburban sun
    You're foolin' everyone
    You win some, you lose some

    I didn't know what we had found
    Just caught the bus and rode it to town
    She wouldn't notice anything else but me

    [Chorus]

    Dancing at discos
    And moaning at phone bills
    Torremolinos and sun burnt in high heels
    Swap it and sell it
    And drop it and smell it
    All those years ago

    She touched my face and called me
    Her lover
    I never thought that I'd need another

    [Chorus: x2]

    [Repeat: x3]
    Now it's gone, now it's gone,
    You win some, you lose some

    Win some. Writer/s: GUY CHAMBERS, ROBERT PETER WILLIAMS
