When Two Worlds Drift Apart

This song is by Ruthie Henshall and appears on the album Pilgrim (2001).

We turned water into wine
Love that didn't last
We were the victims of our age

Now we live on different floors
And go our separate ways
And talk behind closed doors

We changed our world
Waiting for it all to end
It's such a shame
But who's to blame
When two worlds drift apart?

We used to sit around the fire
And whisper words the world outside
Could make no claim to hear

Now we talk an octave higher
In droning tones that don't
Relate at all to yesteryear

We changed our world
Waiting for it all to end
It's a such a shame
But who's to blame
When two worlds drift apart?

Do you remember when we were seventeen?
We took a boat out for an hour
But we prefer the greenery to the scenery of the sea
Tied up in some cosy cove
How the lights appeared across the bay
Remember?

Into love and out of mind
A poet claimed that loving you
Has only made me blind
But love is merely crystal clear
It's only when you need someone
The clouds will soon appear

We changed out world
Waiting for it all to end
It's such a shame
But who's to blame
When two worlds drift apart?

Do you remember when laughter was the cure
For all the hard times that we knew
But we forgot to feed the fire
And let it all burn down
Warmth returns to cold
Poison into pain

It's such a shame
But who's to blame
When two worlds drift apart?
