Spandau Ballet – Always In The Back Of My Mind lyrics

Oh, you're always in the back of my mind .
Nothing ever changes,
Oh, I wish to God it did
Just another drink and you'll be gone.
2 a.m. raining again.
I saw you making faces in the river.
Only me, down by the quay.
Just a sad reflection that I give you.
Oh, I thought time would burn it.
Burn it down to the ground.
Just a little breeze and you'll be strong
Driving home, all on my own.
Just a passenger in all that we lost
Satisfy, oh, lord don't deny,
I see your face in the everything that's near 'cause.
Oh, you were always in the back of my mind
Oh, I have all the memories,
The winter of '82.
When down upon the ice you saw me melt.
Washed up on the rocks again,
Oh, don't you know that it's so damn hot
And the things you do.
Oh I won't ever learn.
Oh I won't ever learn.
Oh, you were always in the back of my mind.
