Back Before You Came There were birds in the trees/ but I never heard them singing/ I had nobody to show birds to back then/ There were bells in the towers but I never heard them ringing/ I did not feel much like singing up till now/ There was snow on the ground/ but I never went out walking/ Because what's the good of talking to some snow?/ Then the rains came and fell/ and the sunlight beamed and glistened/ Yet I never even listened to one drop/ And your smiles and your wiles/ they are not wasted on the ether/ You have such a strong believer on the line/ Pull me in, pull me up, pull me off, and pull me over/ You could take a better lover for all time/ What he meant what she meant/ were not quite in agreement/ But the wars between the sexes are all won/ And the casualties still lying/ where they fell have all stopped crying/ And agreed to drink some water from your mouth/ Don't ever change/ why tamper with perfection?/ I still turn in your direction when I pray/ Life is too short and it always ends badly/ Let us love each other madly while we may
