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




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
