The Kick Inside – Ever The Optimist lyrics

Cast your mind back over conquests failed
Although lust dictated somehow the heart prevailed.
Through each bedroom each trite billet-doux
Through each fleeting romance, the next awaited you.

Then you found me
Dark and indiscreet
Only six months later
Altered as one can be.
Now you're leaving and I can't comprehend
Just being without my only friend.

Don't be so dramatic
We can endure this
Ever the optimist. I'm as fond of you as I've ever been.
There's no need to panic we'll overcome this
Ever the optimist. I'm as fond of you as I'll ever be.

How do you take it, white or black
With sugar? I used to know all that.
Our acquaintance dangles by a thread.
Be patient, it isn't over yet.

Don't be so dramatic
We can endure this
Ever the optimist. I'm as fond of you as I've ever been.
There's no need to panic we'll overcome this
Ever the optimist. I'm as fond of you as I'll ever be.
