Mansun – Comes As No Surprise lyrics

In the sand you used to lay
You'd be there at my side
As the night fell on the shore
She had gone
I trusted to you to stay

Read the story in the papers
Of a lover who had gone
Think that she has moved away
No one heard from her at all
For years

Someone must have heard her leave
Saw something
Get a job or get a place
All these questions made
No sense to me

Comes as no surprise
Stay with me tonight
Said you'd never leave
Pray that you are safe
Comes as no surprise
Stay with me tonight
Stay with me tonight

Every year I will return
And briefly you are there
And you always look the same
Nothing changes
Must have been the breeze

You have shot me to the bone
And ripped me up again
Was the cruelest thing to do
Came as no surprise
To me

Met a soldier from the war
Stole her things
Died alone a junkie
I still wait for you
I know you're safe

Comes as no surprise
Stay with me tonight
Said you'd never leave
Pray that you are safe
Comes as no surprise
Stay with me tonight
Stay with me tonight
Stay with me tonight
