You know baby from the very start

I fell in love with your body but

Got caught by my heart

You had your hooks into me

I was none too smart

But now the suckers slipped the line

The time has come to part

 

The time has come to part

 

I go to seek the consolation of my pride

The last part left still alive inside

Love can be grand, but baby you gotta understand

If what is ours may never be

You have your yours

But I still have mine

 

I still got mine

 

As you filled my heart with wonder

My mind overflowed with unease

I knew from the very first that no matter

How I aim to please

That in this world or the next

Or in any world that could ever be

I could never please you

Our love could never be

 

Looking down the road ahead

Bliss and sorrow all mixed into

The joy and dread

If we could recall from our dream

Even one word said

This love would not be dead

Our love would not be dead

 

Joy comes and goes and the pain remains

Right behind the loss of all the love that was gained

So it’s good-bye baby, till we meet again

Somewhere around the bend

Somewhere around the bend.

 

You know baby from the very start

I fell in love with your body but

Got caught by my heart

You had your hooks into me

I was none too smart

But now the suckers slipped the line

The time has come to part

 

I’ve been making the sacrifice

By living in the truth

What I do for me, only you can do for you

Till then your living in a dream that never will come true

I love you baby, but I leave you to your blues

 

Everything held dear must be on it’s way

Even the memory of love in time will dissipate

There is one sweet thing that lives on always

What it is I can not say

What it is I can not say

 

You know baby from the very start

I fell in love with your body but

Got caught by my heart

You had your hooks into me

I was none too smart

But now the suckers slipped the line

The time has come to part
