Lyrics

And now I've kissed you I'll show you how I've missed you
Before you even say a word I already heard
No, someone told me but don't speak now just hold me
You wandered up a cul-de-sac and now you've come back

So did you leave him? I'm sure you didn't deceive him
Just the same you're here today wanting to stay
Have I upset you? Well I tried hard to forget you
Now you say, "Look, I came, let's try again"

I'll make you laugh when you see this photograph
It's not from that day I threw all those away
Its just some boy probably dressed in corduroy
He grew up fast but you've not changed at all

How can I trust you? No, I'm not trying to rush you
But I was here when you ran; I don't think I can
I won't desert her and I'm not about to hurt her
I worshipped you once before and you slammed the door

I'll make you laugh when you see this photograph
It's not from that day I threw all those away
Its just some boy probably dressed in corduroy
He grew up fast but you've not changed at all
