When i write the book
(nick lowe/dave edmunds/billy bremner)
Now i can remember like it was only yesterday
Love was young and foolish like a little child at play
But oh how lovers change - i never dreamed how easily
Cause now im just a shadow of the boy i used to be
And when i write the book about my love
It will be about a man whos torn in half
About his hopes and ambitions wasted through the years
The pain will be written on every page in tears
When i write the book about my love
I was a fool to myself when i kept on runnin around
And i fared little better when i tried settlin down
Maybe some magic moment - ive never known one, not for long
For all too soon the magic is in a moment gone
And when i write the book about my love
Itll be a heartbreaking story about love and luck
When i get down on the pages all i felt
It will make the hardest-hearted of critics hearts melt
When i write the book about my love
When i was young love was fun and i was so happy - i looked so good and i dressed so snappy
Two-tone shoes on my feet big old smile on my face - as i moved and grooved all over the place
Now im down in the heels my complexion is bad
Cause my love life is sadder than sad
And when i write the book about my love
Itll be a pop publication, tougher than tough
When i get down on the pages all i missed
It will shoot to the top of the best-sellers list
When i write the book about my love
