Fade Away (Dunnery Francis)

She said my shoes were cheap and my clothes were all outdated She stopped me drinking beer and gave me wine But I can't hide from what I am just an ordinary man Trying to make it through the day As I watch our love so slowly fade away Like a flower She said my friends were fools and she won't talk to my brother She made me sit there and talk to her friends But I can see it their eyes, they are frowning as they smile And I didn't have much to say I just watch our love so slowly fade away Like a flower I watch our love so ever slowly fade Like the summertime Like the honesty you promised me would stay She said I gotta change my ways or she's leaving me tommorrow I said get out of here, leave me alone And she came crying to my door Said she liked me as before But I had a price to pay Cos at last our love could finally fade away Like a flower
