So much for a promise made
End of obligations
Pick up what you got
And get thee gone

Two way thoughts
And two way eyes
One way conversations
Too much and too little going on

You were like the sun
Oh, how you danced
The morning down on me
Two becoming one and
Spinning on into infinity

Ah, but life is not a song
For singers of uncertainty
One reverts to two
Subtracts the me from you
Nothing's new

Images of better days
Sail like ghostly galleons
Lorelei, your songs
Have all been sung

Silently, they slip away
Words that once rang sweetly
Now leave a bitter taste
On the tongue

Man and woman
Non believers
Self deceivers to the end

Man and woman
Part time lovers
Full time strangers
Seldom friends

Da da da da...

So much for a promise made
End of obligations

Two way thoughts
And two way eyes
One way conversations

In the midst of present
Circumstances, it would seem
My hands were tied

So we go on with our
Merry dances and pretend
We're satisfied

You'll devote your time
To worthy causes
With your homemade
Jams and bread

Only to ignore
The pregnant pauses
When we're tucked up
In our beds

Man and woman
Non believers
Self deceivers to the end

Man and woman
Part time lovers
Full time strangers
Seldom friends

Da da da da...

So much for a promise made
End of obligations
Pick up what you got
And get thee gone

Two way thoughts
And two way eyes
One way conversations
Too much and too little going on
