come live with me lyrics – heaven 17

i was thirty-seven
you were seventeen
you were half my age
the youth i’d never seen

unlikely people meeting in a dream
heaven only knows
the way it should have been

here today, my tomorrow
where you lead i will follow
all that kissing
no p*ssion missing

come live with me
kiss the boys goodbye
come live with me
kiss the boys goodbye
come live with me

dinner parties followed
and all my age implies
my friends began to talk
i began to realize

if half the things they say
are quarter true of me
then how can i eclipse the youth?
you gave to set me free

there was something in your smile
that was hard to reconcile
the time had come to testify to reason

though years will not erase
remembrance of those days
at least there’s
no submission to hearts treason

here today, my tomorrow
no more shame, only sorrow
all that kissing
there’s something missing

come live with me
kiss the boys goodbye
come live with me
kiss the boys goodbye
come live with me

now there’s nothing left to cry for
and there’s nowhere left to go
just another hopeless fight
but how were we to know?

the strong are sometimes wrong
but the weak are never free
the choice we made, we can’t evade
don’t try to follow me

here today, my tomorrow
no more pain only sorrow
all that kissing
there’s something missing

come live with me
kiss the boys goodbye
come live with me
kiss the boys goodbye

come live with me
kiss the boys goodbye
come live with me
kiss the boys goodbye

come live with me
kiss the boys goodbye
come live with me
kiss the boys goodbye

come live with me
kiss the boys goodbye
come live with me
kiss the boys goodbye
come live with me
kiss the boys goodbye
