Del AmitriIt's Never Too Late To Be Alone

Summer here is over in a million different ways You look like a dream sometimes, but I don't dream these days Yesterday the snow fell, by four o'clock it thawed And last night making love to you, well honey, it was such a fraud 'cos you can find yourself a lover You can find yourself a home You can want no other ever But it's never too late to be alone So everything is settled or so we do pretend From a beautiful beginning babe to a muted kind of end And our separate possessions are shuffled up on shelves Like our fingers lock together when we talk about ourselves You can find yourself one day staring into space With a suitcase waiting by the door You can think you've got it made 'til it hits you in the face That these are not the people you want to be before Summer here is over, you can feel it in the air From the down-town shells to the upland hills The chill is everywhere © 2019
