Lovers and Friends Lyrics

Lovers And Friends - The Communards

 

All night you'd lay asleep

 

Enfolded in my arms

 

Breathing slow and sweet

 

I never understood

 

How it would prove to be

 

Such a luxury to feel

 

Your hand warm in my hand

 

Your kiss on my cheek

 

Lovers and friends

 

Are all that matter

 

You'll never know how much it

Came to mean to me

 

To have you by my side

 

In battles lost and won

 

And now I understand

 

These things can never be

 

Guaranteed

 

I wish I could recall

 

Each mundane tenderness

 

Remember every look each word

 

Preserve every breath

 

Each kiss each caress

 

Lovers and friends

 

Are all that matter

 

I never thought that I would

 

Watch you drowning

 

Far from any sea on crumpled sheets

 

White sand in your eyes

 

Lovers and friends

 

Are all that matter

 

And now when all I have of you

 

Is a memory

 

I raise my hand to touch my cheek

 

 

Imprinted with your love
