This song gives a list of reasons why a relationship could fail. Nice song at times, but the recording is a little dodgy!


I’m getting older and need to rush in (I’m off to war, so we’ll be apart)
I’m still recovering from a big break up (which really changed your heart)

Well I’ve always liked you, but I just don’t see it… (You’re still a romantic and feeling blue)
You’re leaving to go backpacking in three months (and I can’t believe it’s true)

We’re surfing on a wave of awkward timings and I’d never have believed it true…
I still love you (in parts I do) but in such difficult/bad circumstances, nobody but you will do
I do love you…. It might be cool, if there weren’t mitigating circumstances
I could see you as a friend, if only you could play it cool
I’m off to school in the next town in two weeks, so it just can’t be…

I think that you’re handsome, but also reckless (I’ve got these exams and an awkward time)
You believe in marriage and I’m not so sure (I wish that you were mine)

Well you’re only 20 and I’m 25 (I had a bad experience in my prime)
Having a career is your priority (romance is now mine)
