I wander lonely streets
Behind where the old Thames does flow
And in every face I meet
Reminds me of what I have run from

*In every man, in every hand
In every kiss, you understand
That livng is for other men*
I hope you two will understand


I've got to tell you my tale
Of how I loved and how I failed
I hope you understand


I've got to tell you my tale
Of how I loved and how I failed
I hope you understand
These feelings should not be in the man


In every child, in every eye
In every sky, above my head
I hope that I know
So come with me in bed
Because it's you and me, we're history
There ain't nothing left to say
When I will get you alone


Maybe we could find a room
Where we could see what we should do
Maybe you konw it's true
Living with me is like keeping a fool


In every man, in every hand
In every kiss, you understand
That living is for other men
I hope you know that I am me so come on
I'm thinking about history
And I'm living for history
And I think you know about me
Cause I am


And one and one is two
But three is company
When you're thinking about the things you do
And you're thinking about the things you do
I want to tell you my tale
How I fell in love and jumped out on my bail
I hope ypu understand there's more in a smile than in a hand
In every sky, in every kiss
There's something that I migght have missed


Why am I going to
A place that now belongs to you
But you were weak and so was I
Let's pick it up, let's even try
To live today, so why not smile
Don't dream away your life coz it is mine
Is that a crime (repeat) this life is mine
The bed ain't made but it's filled full of hope
I've got a skin full of dope
I've got a skin full of dope
