Level 42 – As Years Go By lyrics

Tell me how the years go by
Its been a long long time
Tell me how your plans fell through
And how you changed your mind

Tell me 'bout the hearts you broke
How many have you known
Tell me how the years went by
And left you all alone

Tell me dear
I want to hear
'bout the lost and wasted years
Tell me when now tell me why
Tell me how the years go by

Tell me how the years go by
Like borrowed dancing shoes
That gather dust beneath your ned
Mislaid and seldom used
Like a heart that haunts a phone booth
On a corner far from home
Tell me how the years went by and left you
All alone

Close your eyes
Tell me what do you see
Its an imperfect world
Still we dream perfect dreams
Its no big surprise when we're down on our knees
Truth isn't always what we will believe.

Tell me how the years go by
In seasons at your door
And how the things you left me for
Don't matter anymore
Tell me how the more we learn
The more we leave unknown
Tell me how the years went by and left you
All alone
Alone

Close your eyes (x3)
