Richard Thompson – Happy Days And Auld Lang Syne lyrics

He said, Dear, I'm leaving, right there in the hallway
As the party roared on all around
And her head wouldn't turn, O she couldn't look at him
In a whirlpool she quietly drowned
And she said to herself, I won't cry, I won't grieve
But I'll laugh and I'll flow with the wine
With the fast love of strangers we'll sing Sweet Bye and Bye
Happy Days and Auld Lang Syne

How I wish I knew
All the old songs they're singing
Such comfort they're bringing
To a heart that's as empty as mine
O it lifts you so high
Does the Sweet Bye and Bye
Happy Days and Auld Lang Syne

And she said, I'll be wearing my smile like a mask
And I'll care for each stranger I kiss
And no-one will know that I'm wounded and cheated
So close to my moment of bliss
And sometimes you never connect with a song
Till it's telling the way that you feel
Putting words to your story, all the pain and the glory
How can it be written so real

How I wish I knew
All the old songs they're singing
Such comfort they're bringing
To a heart that's as empty as mine
O it lifts you so high
Does the Sweet Bye and Bye
Happy Days and Auld Lang Syne
