marianne lyrics – human league

i take one look at you
it leaves me breathless
i see your dreams come true
you’re not so restless
or light, or bright
marianne

one day i might not care
what happened to me
your lack of sympathy fails to disturb me
i’ve got a life of my own

i remember the day i thought we couldn’t lose
running round the garden in your mother’s shoes
playing with your sisters
i didn’t see you were a grown up girl
and bringing me tea
but is it life in a grown up world
on a cold autumn day
is it life, someone’s wife
when the car had broken down

the best of my girls
i didn’t see you were a grown up girl
oh how i hate the celebration
but you give it all away leaving me on my own
but is it life in a grown up world
i can’t wait for the end of the celebration
is it life, someone’s wife

add it up, all that’s left is a sp*ce in a life
that goes on as before

one day i might not care
what happens to me
your lack of sympathy fails to disturb me
i’ve got a life of my own

add it up, all that’s left is a sp*ce in a life
that goes on as before
marianne

add it up, all that’s left is a sp*ce in a life
that goes on as before
marianne
add it up, all that’s left is a sp*ce in a life
that goes on as before
marianne

add it up, all that’s left is a sp*ce in a life
at the end of the world
marianne
