They say you have no lips for a fool such as I
They say you just believe in hello and goodbye.
And they say that the one I admire isn’t even remotely concerned
And that I’ll go on playing with fire
Until I learn, my heart has been burned.
They say I shouldn’t dream of your face in the gloom.
They say that all my dreams will be nightmares too soon.
Let them talk. Let them say what they want to
If it makes them feel happy that way
I know I’ll always love you, no matter what they say.
