Since You and I Were True lyrics
1. We might as well lie down love,
lie down and close our eyes.
We might as well go walking
in the country of the blind.
Chorus: Well the long grass has grown, the wild birds - flown
to their homes away in the blue. And ah nothing is the same.
The whole world has changed
since you and I were true.
2. How can a story be ended
when it didn't hardly begin?
How can a glass be so empty
when it's filled up to the brim?
3. In the country where we're heading love,
there is nothing but rocks and stones.
No friendly plant or animal,
no angel to guide you home.
Chorus, Repeat verse 1, Chorus
