lyrics

IT COULDN’T LAST

When love is gone, when love has left you
It’s gone for good, I’ll come and get you through it
Don’t be strong, don’t think you should
It couldn’t last, it’s gone for good

The price was high, I tried to pay
To make the hurting go away
I was quick on my feet until today
It couldn’t last, it’s gone away

Chorus
And all the promises, the days and nights
I see it now, put out the light
All I wanted, all that I dreamed
Love didn’t answer or it wasn’t what it seemed

When love is gone your heart stops beating
You don’t belong, you lose the feeling for it
An empty place without the faces
It couldn’t last and now it’s gone

Chorus
And all the promises, the days and nights
I see it now, put out the light
And all the talk and all the smiles
Left me to walk alone and I’ve run right out of miles

When love is gone, don’t look back
It’s gone for good. the good is passed
Pack up your things and move along
It couldn’t last and now it’s gone

Chorus
And all the promises, the days and nights
I see it now, put out the light
And all the summer-times have come around
And fallen fast with the leaves onto the ground

When love is gone, when love has left you
It’s gone for good, I’ll come and get you through it
Don’t be strong, don’t think you should
It couldn’t last, it’s gone for good
