lyrics

In the early evening when the sun goes down
I come looking for you but you're not around
Not around
You're not around, ain't coming round

In the middle of the night when the moon comes up
I come looking for you to fill my cup
Fill my cup
Fill my cup, can't give it up

Well you told me that you wanted us to make a life
You wanted me to be your wife
Be your wife – I said I might

So we built our house and we built it for three
You even asked my family
To marry me
Marry me, make a family

And oh those nights down in Mexico
Love, lovin' so slow
It rolled
It was all I need to know

Well you told me that you wanted us to make a life
You wanted me to be your wife
Be your wife – every night

Now where did you come from, where did you go?
Where did you come from, I don't know
Romeo
Romeo, where did you go?

You were here and gone like a lightning strike
Tore up my heart and vanished in the night
The night
I miss those nights

Well you told me that you wanted us to make a life
You wanted me to be your wife
Be your wife – what changed your mind

And what was it that made you change your mind?
The way I turn my head or the imperfect way I smile?
The way I smile
I used to smile

In the early morning when the sky grows light
Don't come back saying baby it's alright
