Mike & The Mechanics – Before lyrics

A freezing cold december brings a chill into my heart
And fills me with an emptiness now we're so far apart
Lost in my confusion now through everything I see
Oh won't you come on back I need you here with me


Before the next heartache falls
Before the next heartache falls

Lonely as the darkness casts a spell upon the night
I'm past the point of caring if I'm wrong or I am right
I wonder if you realise oh just what it means to me
Listen to me darlin' I'm just let you see


Early morning finds me at the house upon the hill
Everywhere the laughter reminds me of you still
I'm haunted by the memories all too easy to recall
I would dare to mention there's a lesson for us all


Tears already falling like the rain upon the ground
When the storm is over no trace of it is found
Never will I understand how you vanished like the rain
Tell me that you'll come back and let me live again
