​Tears All Over Town

This song is by Everything But the Girl and appears on the album Idlewild (1988).

Don't be unkind, for once be untrue -
Can't pretend I care for her, only you
Just be on time, spare me your shame,
For once don't mention her name.
Now I cannot claim angel's wings,
But mention her name and I'll wreck everything

I saw things not meant for my eyes,
I was happy once and then twice.
I said things I shouldn't have said.
I told tales of days in your bed.
In love and war there's nothing sacred.

Just don't pretend, wherever you go,
There are things that only I know -
Because I'm sure, when she's there,
That you tell a few of the secrets of yours
That I had kept for you.

I saw things not meant for my eyes,
I was happy once and then twice.
I said things I shouldn't have said.
I told tales of days in your bed.
In love and war there's nothing sacred.
