The A Word • s3e3




Saw a girl that I used to know I was deep in thought at the time Don't recognise the face at first 'Cause I was probably looking at mine Well she was the only girl I've ever loved But my folks didn't dig her so much I was young It was serious To me she was the world (she was my world now) I thought I'd never live without her, But I got by in time Well let me tell you now, Saw a guy that I used to know Man he'd changed so much I think it hurt him to say 'hello', 'Cause he hardly opened his mouth Yeah well he was my best friend a few years ago Truly inseperable We were young And full of ideals We were gonna rule this whole world But something happened I didn't know why But that's the way that it goes. I suppose, What you say - what you do Don't mean nothing, nothing at all And all the bonds you make between ya Can be broken any time you want now Please tell me if my philosophy's wrong I've got to know the truth I don't mean to offend anyone but, You know it's something that I do, oh- So nice to see you tonight, And I'm so glad that you came Some of the people standing outside, say Sure feel the same Yeah my point is in a round about way Given time he'll always forget 'Cause the memories That are shouting me on To me everything (you're everything now) And it always will be mine, yeah And no one can take them away
