Gary Numan – Not The Love We Dream Of lyrics

Sometimes things don't work out the way you plan
Sometimes words don't say the thing you mean
Sometimes you can't explain the way you feel
Sometimes when we smile we tell the same lie

With a whisper everything you know is torn away you life just stop
With a whisper everything you are just falls apart and dies
And all those things that you meant to change are thoughts lost on the way
To this
And all those stories you never said are word lost on the wind
Could you ever wonder about me and
Did you ever wish that I was still there?
Did you ever call my name by mistake?
Did you ever cry yourself to sleep?
Slowly slowly we lose the love that binds us
Slowly slowly we lose the care that hold us
Slowly slowly we lose time that shares us
Slowly slowly we lose the heart to save us

Sometimes things are not the way they seem
Sometimes friends are not the friends thy seem
Sometimes time is not the cure it seems
Sometimes love is not the love we dream of
