She's Forgotten Your Name
April 21, 1987

Everything tries to be the same
It's hard to see the sun
when she's forgotten your name
Every moment drives you half insane

Love isn't a game anymore
Stakes are far too high
Can a shredded heart beat much harder?
Or are we left to die?

Over your shoulder doesn't help
at this late hour
She'll probably never be your sunshine again
In the rain you'll cry, you miss her so
In the mist nothing can hide your pain

Tears that will someday fade away
doesn't solve the hurt
Cigarette chain only ends it faster
Gives a broken hearted slave a suicidal master
Sure disaster

Everything tries to be the same
It's hard to see the sun
When she's forgotten your name
Every moment drives you half insane

The hole is there to jump in
The friends you had just laugh
And everyone but you is to blame
For romance that has died

Love is not a game anymore
The price is way too high
The feel of her lips upon yours
Stab as distant memories
And you start to cry

If I see her walking in the prime of her life
I might get some courage after a while
On a rainy night I might let our eyes unite
Although we're walking different miles
and wearing separate smiles

Love is not a game anymore
A heart in pieces, full of love before
Old and sore
and dead, What for?
