This happened once before,
When I came to your door,
No reply.
They said it wasn't you,
But I saw you peep through your window.
I saw the light, I saw the light,
I know that you saw me,
'cos I looked up to see,
Your face.
I tried to telephone,
They said you were not home,
That's a lie,
'Cos I know where you've been,
I saw you walk in your door.
I nearly died, I nearly died,
'cos you walked hand in hand
With another man,
In my place.
If I were you, I'd realise that I,
Love you more than any other guy.
And I'll forgive the lies that I,
Heard before,
When you gave me no reply.
I've tried to telephone,
They said you were not home,
That's a lie,
'Cos I know where you've been,
I saw you walk in your door.
I nearly died, I nearly died,
'cos you walked hand in hand
With another man in my place.
No reply, no reply.
