He sits behind her in the evening.
She turns and asks him for a light.
He worked so hard so he'd be something.
Just what it was she never knew.
He lays beside her as she's sleeping.
She asks if everything's alright.
Is there a secret he's been keeping?
She doesn't know anything he says.
He doesn't feel anything she says.
I've been waiting for too long for love like this
To let it slip away.
I've been waiting for your tender kiss.
She says, "I just might leave tomorrow."
He says, "Tomorrow never comes."
So we'll just learn to love our sorrow.
I'll love you tender as your sleeping.
I'll love you bitter through the day.
