Girl of mine
Where did we go wrong

Oh you never once said you loved me
And you never once called my name
And now I
I can see the way

My memories like cigarettes
Blow smoke upon the screen

I stare up to the empty face
That hangs inside my dreams
In the words of love I hesitate
They all come rushing in to me
Too late too late

Days and nights
Wondering what could it be

Someone to see you through
Did you need somebody stronger

Oh girl I never knew

Now your lipstick and your powder
They're all put away in drawers

But the traces of our love affair
Still hide behind the doors

I lie awake afraid to sleep
Cause I see the face I knew I'd never keep
I'd never keep

Too much to bear

Too much I fall down drunk
Too much I care

Tell me now
Do the words of love still seem the
Same to you
Now we learned the angry lessons

And we still came back for more

Forget somehow what came before

My senses have been shocked
And I'm alive to every pain
Your quiet laughter comes to me

It echoes in the rain
In the darkness of my lonely room

I pray that you won't fade
Away too soon
Too soon

It's too much to bear
It's too much I fall down drunk
Too much I care
