Strawbs – Out In The Cold lyrics

I walked in the city at midday
It was empty and bare
I looked in the mirror at midnight
There was nobody there
You had become the very breath that I breathed
You were all I desired, my will to succeed
But now I know how it feels to be old
Out in the cold.

I walked in the city at midday
It was feeling the strain
I looked in the mirror at midnight

It was starting to rain
I sucked on your breasts, your legs opened wide
I could scarcely believe all the pleasures inside
But now I know how it feels to be old
Out in the cold.

Whoever believed in astrological signs
Under my eyes your name burns in the lines
For now I know how it feels to be old
Out in the cold.

    I have listened to this song countless times, and to me it always sounded like Dave Cousins was singing "But now I know how it feels to be on, Ali MacGraw". Under my eyes, and in my ears, her name "burns in the lines". I was once told they used to be an item, but I have not been able to confirm this. Does anyone know?
