I was once a Sunday kneeler
When I saw the leadlight
Fall from the pane
I didn't know that the grass
Was not only greener
Upkeep is cheaper
When you embrace the rain

So I jumped down to lay with my leadlight
Under your spotlight
I lay with the shards
And I didn't know that that ground
Was not only harder
Oh but colder when you are not around

I love you my darling, I do
But I can't let possession make a fool of you
I love you my darling, I do
But I can't promise I'll be here to see this whole love through

So I ran with dreams to reach the skyline
And straight up that incline
I ran towards the blue
And I didn't know that the sky
Is not only wider
Oh but clearer when I'm standing next to you

I love you my darling, I do
But I can't let possession make a fool of you
I love you my darling, I do
But I can't promise I'll be here to see this whole love through

Oh I believe in trust, you see
But don't you go and put your trust in me
I cost more than you earn
So tell me boy why didn't you ever learn?

I love you my darling, I do
But I can't let possession make a fool of you
I love you my darling, I do
But I can't promise I'll be here to see this whole... love...
Through
