Writing this in 2009, I really feel the oceans of water that have traveled under the bridge since then. My favourite memory of this tune is hearing it pop up on the wedding video of two friends of mine, Sean & Kim. Awesome feeling.


Different dreams and sad suspicions,
Murky dazes and bad wishes stir her heart.
Nothing wasted on the tissues,
Nothing spared from other issues but it shows.
She has wept her full endearment,
She has spent herself on caring - that she should.
Can I make this all seem normal,
Can I make myself be closer to her heart ?

You're my Lady Love.
And I haven't even started crying,
You were once my heart.

I was talking to her Monday,
Caught her looking at a weirdo - that was me.
I couldn't talk coherently,
My tongue tied up in knots why should that be ?
I have run this ground before me,
I have tried and she's ignored me now,
I don't care.
But that's a lie and I will warn you not
To trust yourself in matters of the heart.

You're my Lady Love.
And I haven't even started crying,
You were once my heart.

Do we know if we care ?
Does it show if we're shy ?
Do we bleed in the night ?
Do we lie under the lights ?
