Six rain ridden summers and he still had an eye for me He kissed me each evening and told me he'd die for me And then he ran off the road, full of whisky and irony He always meant what he said So I took to whisky so I could recall The taste of his mouth on my mouth, that's all I tried the same trick with a truck but it stalled The engine was better off dead CHORUS Oh the nights are long But life is longer still Oh the nights are long But the sun's coming over the hill The taste never left me and I don't think it will And it caused me to supplement whisky with pills But there was something inside that I couldn't kill Believe me, I really did try And there's some say you get what you deserve but they're wrong Sometimes you get what you're given and then it's all gone And you are lucky if you are sufficiently strong To daily decide not to die CHORUS I can't say there's many things I wouldn't change There are better days gone than those that remain But I can find joy in the sound of the rain You have t
o find joy where you can CHORUS X 2
