Let's take a walk, just you and me
And talk of days gone by
Across the fields, under the trees
Let's speak of you and I

While the whole world was wondering
We walked a steady line
When all our friends were wavering
We kept on trying

Now (But) we're always suffering
(We're) Already lost
(We're) Always suffering
Already lost

Remember when on summer days
I would sing a lover's song
How you would smile, shower me with praise
And the sun shined on

Now the rain is falling slow
And the nights grow long
And the train cries out so hauntingly
"She is gone"

Please take these flowers, smell the perfume
Let your soul come alive
Let there be hope, hope in your heart
That our love may revive

Ah yes

For life is but a chance
On a wind swept hill
And the seeds of love are swirling above
Let them be still

Always suffering
We're already lost
