Simply Red - Words for Girlfriends Lyrics

Do I feel jealousy when you're free without me?
Maybe
Do I feel that my love will stay with you forever?
Hopefully
In memoriam of my lovers will you sleep with me forever?
Oh most certainly I never did doubt you
You surround yourself with trinkets like they're meaningful possessions, baby
Like some squirrel in the garden with expensive permutations,
Save me
They'll outlive you in the end will be your final realization
Oh most certainly I never did doubt you

Words for girlfriends parading as songs
To be living with songs, yet without you
Words for girlfriends parading as songs
'Though I never ever really did doubt you, no...

As we search our lives forever for perfection in relations,
Ladies
I can dream of love and scheme of love with all its complications,
Shakily
Ideals are fine for beauty but for love they fool relations
Oh most certainly I never did doubt you

Words for girlfriends parading as songs
To be living with you, yet without you
Words for girlfriends parading as songs
'Though I never ever really did doubt you,
No I never ever really did doubt you

As we search our lives forever for perfection in relations,
Ladies
I can dream of love and scheme of love with all its complications...

They're just words, only words
