Melanie – Lover's Cross lyrics

They all said it was bound to happen,
Was just a matter of time
Now I've come to my decision
And it's one for the painful kind

Oh it seems that you wanted a martyr
Just a regular girl wouldn't do
Now, baby, I can't hang upon a lover's cross for you

I really got to hand it to you
Boy you really tried
But for everytime that we spent laughing,
There were two times that I cried

Cause I never was much of a martyr before
And I ain't gonna start nothing new
Oh, baby, I can't hang upon a lover's cross for you

Tables are meant for turning
And people are bound to change
Bridges are meant for burning
When people in memories are't one and the same

Still I hope that you can find another
Who could take what I could not
She would have to be a super girl
Or maybe a Joan of Arc

Now, I never was much of a martyr before
And I ain't gonna start nothing new
Oh, baby, I can't hang upon a lover's cross for you

The Tables are meant for turning
And people are bound to change
Bridges are meant for burning
When people in memories are't one and the same

Still I hope that you can find another
Who could take what I could not
She would have to be a super girl
Or maybe a Joan of Arc

Now, I never was much of a martyr before
And I ain't gonna start nothing new
Oh, baby, I can't hang upon a lover's cross for
I won't hang upon a lover's cross
I can't hang upon a lover's cross for you
