Tell My Lover

from by This Temple Eden



One of the original This Temple Eden tracks from the 80s.


Tell My Lover

Well the party’s getting older and the music’s getting loud
The people sitting round it’s the same old crowd
The video has just played, ‘It’s just a jump to the left’
And there’s blood and gore from the film seen before
Well I wasn’t even sure if I should come tonight
‘Just some friends’ I thought, hey that’s alright
But as the night has moved on I’ve realised
The feeling’s wrong. the time is wrong I’ve got to get away

It’s two o’clock and I’m gone
And as the night moves on, tell my lover I’ve gone tonight
I know that there’s something wrong, so I’ve done what i’ve thought was right
La, la, la, la, la, la, I’ll pop round and see her sometime
La, la, la, la, la, la, to the love that once was mine

Well you’ll probably never look at my face again
Because you’re the love who has been left behind
You’ll probably call me all the names under the sun
But (the guilty feeling is I’m the lonely one)
I’ve fallen in love so many times before
That the script I’m reading is such a bore
But as the night’s moved on I’ve realised
I lust for love, but that’s not love, and so i’ll get away

So now I’ll dance on my own
But I can’t crawl out the way I fell in
With my partner who steps in time
I’m sure that all things come to an end
