lyrics

…..
that once more makes you wanna stay

We could have been the next big thing
There wasn’t really much else to do
But you turned out to be
Just another nightmare
In that everlasting daydream of -
You played the part
Of the bad guy
Tearing out a page of the shrinking cheque book of my heart

Big tears of laughter
Can save an evening
But they can never save your time
In the long run of the races

Never believed a word you said
But I agreed for a start
There was ten cents imagination
For a million dollar heart
Now they show bad comedies on TV
And the funniest part
Is that they go on and on and on
When you never really felt it was time to start

Big tears of laughter
Can save an evening
But they can never save your time
In the long run of the races

Big tears of laughter
Can save an evening
But they can never save your time
In the long run of the races

Big tears of laughter
Can save an evening
But they can never save your time
In the long run of the races
