Why sing a lonely song?
The whole world knows that love goes wrong
Why loose a heart that isn't broken?
It isn't broken, it can't be broken

Life's just a show for free
Come along and watch with me
The only sins are words unspoken
Words unspoken, never spoken

Sweet things come and go
Give me shame, I'll give you wow
To live for love isn't so easy
It isn't easy, it won't be easy!

How all good men try,
Look around and wonder why
Can they shape this world to please me
Can they please me, should they please me?

I follow but maybe you'll correct me
I wish you'd never met me
For I am your gentle man
I follow and while you watch and wonder
I call my world a sundown
And show you who I am

Send me a gentle dream
of love so strange it's never seen
And proof how such a love can happen
It can happen, make it happen

Fine things tumble down
Fade away without a sound
But hope must never end or slacken
Never slacken, never slacken

I follow but maybe you'll correct me
I wish you'd never met me
I am your gentle man
I follow and while you watch and wonder
I call my world a sundown
And show you who I am
