Mel Green: Songs & Lyrics

Always In-Between

(Mel Green ©2010, MelGreen Publishing. BMI)

About an old relationship in my 20s with an art school friend 
that went nowhere.
(I've sometimes wondered how my kissing friend’s life turned out, 
and whether she eventually found lasting happiness.)

About an old relationship that went nowhere. I wonder how my kissing friend’s life turned out, and whether she eventually found lasting happiness

I went to see her 

Quite late at night 

I was a dreamer

And we would never fight

We talked and kissed a lot 

By the grey moonlight 

I never said I loved her 

You never thought I might

 

Sometimes when I get to thinking   

I wonder what might have been  

I was always leaving

You were always in-between

 

And so we passed each other 

Like fast trains in the night

Getting further from each other 

Looking for love at night 

 

What could you be doing now? 

My beautiful kissing friend

Do you have a family?

Do you remember those things we said?

 

And when your nights are lonely  

Do you you remember me?

And how we came to start 

Those nights of ecstacy.
