(nichtern)I never did sing you a love songI only sang phrases in timeI never did write you a sonnetI just laid my cards down in rhymesUp and down the river, so many boats to rideYet precious few deliver the goods that we need to surviveI never spoke falsely or crosslyI never put tears in your eyesAnd you never shattered my lonely heartYou never deceived me with liesAnd yet somehow I seem to recall I stood in my sleep for a whileDreaming of a river man exchanging my life for a smile
