We're not long for this world we're not long for this world
And the way I can tell is I know you too well
We're not long for this world

I know the words that you say and the words that you mean
And I remember the days when you meant everything

We're not long for this world...
[ ac.guitar ]
You hold me close in your arms and I feel the cold
Oh but you never meant any harm by the lies that you told

We're not long for this world...
