Lyrics

I tried to call
You'd just gone out
We've got to talk
You going to be about?
Oh you don't have to tell me where you've been
It's bad enough I know you were with him

What makes you want to take him there?
What makes you think I wouldn't care?
And did you walk from the town into the heather
To where we used to lie down when we were together?

No I walked by
I sort of knew
I don't know why
Maybe I'll ask you
You don't have to tell me lies today
I saw him sat there waiting anyway

But what makes you want to take him there?
What makes you think I wouldn't care?
And did you walk from the town into the heather
To where we used to lie down when we were together?

And I know I said
I wouldn't be the one
But an empty bed
Your clothes all gone
I didn't know how much I'd miss you until now
I didn't know how much you mean to me somehow

What makes you want to take him there?
What makes you think I wouldn't care?
And did you walk from the town into the heather
To where we used to lie down when we were together? (ohh)
