Lyrics

Only The Good Die Lonely

Written By: Neil Waterman

The space you want
The respect you crave
The sympathy, empathy
All this I gave

Your parents come
I cook and behave
Equality, loyalty,
All this I made

But you need the rouge
Who will treat you wrong
Take your heart, love you mean
Make you laugh, and then move on

The home you want
I’ll mow the lawn
I’ll feed your fish
I won’t use the phone

That trip abroad
Let’s go at once
To the Isle of Dread
But I won’t make a fuss

But you need the rouge
Who will treat you wrong
Take your heart, love you mean
Make you laugh, and then move on

So tell me why the good die lonely
Confident in nothing but this song?
So tell me why, when we could be together
You live for a 'moment' and choose Mr Wrong?

Did I mention your bum
Looks small in that dress?
I like your hair tied-up
I like it long, I must confess

I’m happy to shop
I’m happy to wait
An hour or two
As long as I’m not late

But you need the rouge
Who will treat you wrong
Take your heart, love you mean
Make you laugh, and then move on

So tell me why the good die lonely
Confident in nothing but this song?
So tell me why, when we could be together
You live for a 'moment' and choose Mr Wrong?

And when you needed me most
I’d be right by your side
Selflessly with you
I’d have nothing to hide

The space that you wanted
The respect that you craved
You know I’d die for you
Our love to the grave

But you need the rouge
Who will treat you wrong
He’d take your heart, love you mean
He’d make you cry, but then move on
