Paul Kelly And The Messengers – I Can't Believe We Were Married lyrics

Paul Kelly (Mushroom)
We dance in the kitchen on Boxing Day
I held you swaying in my arms to Marvin Gaye
Our Christmas ham turned green by New Year's Eve
We weren't hungry anyway
Now sometimes we see each other on the street
Maybe at a hotel or some party
We say hello then we have to go
I can't believe we were married
That we were wed
Our houses were a shambles, our love conspiracy
Your hand was always down my pants
Before our guests could leave
They didn't like our drugs, our children or our dogs
The way we made it up each day
Now the kids have grown we talk on the phone
If one of them is sick or needs some money
Our words are dry, so measured and polite
I can't believe we were married
That we were wed
Now maybe if I'm with someone you come into my mind
The one I knew with your certain little cries
You're not the only one to come rushing in
It's like a party line
Yeah sometimes we see each other on the street
Maybe at a concert or some party
We say hello talk about the show
I can't believe we were married
Yeah we say hello then we have to go
You send your regards to all my family
And the years have changed even the sound of your name
I can't believe that we were married
That we were wed
