Chris De Burgh – Day After Day lyrics

I could never hear you when you told me that you loved me,
I could never hear you when you called my name,
I could only listen to the beat of my own heart,
I could never hear you at all;

I could never see it when you needed some affection,
And I could never see it when you lost your way,
And I could not see you leaving me until it was too late,
I could never see it at all;

Oh day after day I was lost in my own world,
Did you call me to be here again,
And night after night did you dream of a lover
Who would come here and take you away?

It is never easy to give up and just surrender,
But that is now exactly what I have to do,
You were always there beside me, but I hardly knew it,
So here¹s a promise to you;

Oh day after day I will be there in your world,
I want you to come back again,
And night after night I will give you my love
And I will tenderly take you away;

And I will always listen to things that need saying,
And I will always hear you, when you want me,
We had something so beautiful but I did not see it,
Till all the beauty had gone, and I need you,
Day after day, day after day.
