Even Though
April 13, 1987

I once had a love that let me down
So now I run all over town
Searching for someone to share the dawn
to them I sing a lonely song

I gave her all my love
to her I gave it all
And then in the middle of wondrous night
She walked away and left me quite
Withdrawn

Even though its yesterday's news
Even though its last years booze
I drink it and think about you
Sometimes that's all I do

Even though you've gone far away
Even though you cry everyday
I stand bold and reach out for you
Somedays that's all I do

Even though the end was all wrong
Even though it's no longer our song
I still can sing it long for you
Sometimes that's all I do

I gave her my trust
To her I gave it all
And in the middle of fantastic dreams
She interrupted with terrific screams

Even though my heart has gone soft
And even though you brushed us off
I can still dream about you
Sometimes that's all I do

Even though I've lost my smile
Even though I've lost my style
I can walk a hundred miles to get to you
And late at night I sometimes do

Even though the sun is gone
Even though we've both carried on
I still go back and cry about you
Sometimes that's all that I do

I gave her all my plans
to her I gave it all
But in the middle of the greatest times
She stole all that was ever mine

Even though you slammed down the phone
Even though I'm all alone
With me is the thought of loving you
Sometimes that's all I do

Even though I'm often scared
Even though my pride is bared
I would risk it all to hold on to you
Sometimes that's all I do

Even though the day is ending quick
Even though our love is sick
I am well enough to cherish you
I always do

You met me at a turning point
I met you in the prime of life
You escaped too quickly for me to love
Just as I was falling, falling for you

Even though I thought I'd found the best
We fought, we hurt, we failed the test
