play The Kind Of Love You Never Recover From

from COLD PIZZA FOR BREAKFAST

I know a couple, she sits in a rocking chair
Working puzzles, He watches TV upstairs
She's got a secret she has never let out
A man she thinks he never knew about

She hasn't seen him in 30 years
The mention of his name does not bring on tears
If you ask her "Are there any regrets?"
She'll tell you 'no'
But she never forgets

It was the kind of love you never recover from
even though she found another one
To take his place
She never will escape the truth
At times like this when the moon is right
When the air is foggy like it is  tonight
She'll think about what might have been
If she had just held on to him

I know a man who has done it all
Sailed the oceans climbed the mountains of Nepal
He lives high up on the Avenue
With a beautiful wife, lovely children too

But there's a woman he still dreams about
Certain things he's learned to live without
If you ask him "Are there any regrets?"
He'll tell you 'no'
But he never forgets

It was the kind of love you never recover from
Even though he found another one
To take her place
He never will escape the truth
At times like this when the moon is right
When the air is foggy like it is tonight
He'll think about what might have been
If he had not let her
Slip away from him

I read about a woman who said
She never regretted
Anything she'd ever done
Such arrogant words always seem to be spoken
By those who then die young

So here am I looking at you
Oh tell me what are we gonna do?
Am I destined to be a regret?
Are you that one I will never forget

Years from now will we curse the day
You let me let you walk away
Oh isn't this too dear a price to pay
For the freedom of going separate ways?

This is the kind of love you never recover from
Don't tell me I'm gonna find another one
To take your place
I never will escape the truth
At times like this when the moon is right
When the air is foggy like it is tonight
I'll think how sweet life could be
If you would stay with me
Oh stay with me

This is the kind of love you never recover from
Don't tell me I gonna find another one
To take your place
Try and face the truth
Let me hold you close tonight
The fog has lifted the moon is so bright
Think how sweet life could be
If you would stay with me
Oh stay with me

This is the kind of love you never recover from
This is the kind of love
you never recover from
