Ribbon Road lyrics


As Lovely For Me

When I'm sad and it's bad day
Who could tell things are in such a bad way
I am still 'cos I just can't say
Or even whisper what they all say

When I smile it's to relieve you
To show that I believe you
For a while I can really see you
I know I'll never leave you

Tumbled and worn, a maid all forlorn
Crumbled and gone like a dream
Troubled and torn, a man of the morning
Could love be as lovely for me

When I wake I try to listen
Dew glistens on first grass
My mistake, and I'm found missing
The ground is kissing me at last

When I turn I know that you hide me
Right beside me each step of the way
Where I burn you move inside me
You find me where I hide away

Foolish and failed, a shadow in grey
Lonely and laboured too long
Cool in the shade where memory betrays me
Please stay with me, love is too strong

When I'm sad and it's bad day
Who could tell 'cos I just can't say
Or even whisper what they all say

Tumbled and worn, a maid all forlorn
Crumbled and gone like a dream
Troubled and torn, a man of the morning
Could love be as lovely for me
Could love be as lovely for me
Could love be as lovely for me
