Oh my love those deep hungry moans
And those full body kisses where did they all go?
Forward motion like a waterfall
Then suddenly all dried up by supernatural law
If I could have seen the warnings
Been prepared and shortened my days of mourning
I might have been brave, embraced the plain truth
Do I have my regrets?
Only when I think of you.

Oh my youth, you fair-weather friend
Get me all revved up, make me think there’s no end
But now I’m staring down the barrel of reality
Yeah, I’m waking up fast to my mortality
Is time a rogue in hiding?
Picking my pocket while we’re both smiling
I called you friend and you played me a fool
Do I sing my laments?
Only when I think of you

All my life I’ve been much too late
To read the writing on the wall
But grief it heals so secretly
And takes me where I belong
Another dawn

Oh my Lord I rarely call your name
Unless I’m kicking and cursing, swearing in vain
Have my Earthly delights caused you dismay
Or were they merely a ruse to hold you at bay
In my hour of reckoning is my need of you
My true destiny?
I cannot go without a fight
Dissolve like sugar in the afterlife
I’ve paid my dues, let me break one more rule
Will I ever repent?
Only when I think of you
Only when I think of you.
