Language English Era 2000 and later



Looking through old photographs of lovers I once had
Some blew through like a summer storm and some just made me laugh
Drinkers, smokers, barroom jokers, you know I?ve had my share
Paying dues in the hard luck school of lousy love affairs

But now the circle?s come around
What was lost now is found
Full moon silver on the ground
Darling, you are living proof
Love arrives when it is due

Here?s one of me at seventeen, ready to enact
A steamy scene from a novel read behind my parents? back
But one by one, the stars fell from my disillusioned eyes
And romance became a dirty word somewhere along the line


Oh, I can tell you some love war stories
Two-time Toms and no-count Harries
But each one was a lesson true
That brought me here to loving you
