Romance Will Never Die

I'm lying by the riverside
Sleeping under a sunny sky
The young girls take their stockings off
Romance will never die

Old men selling photographs
Baby, they've all been torn in half
The young girls lean on window sills
Romance will never die

So why do I keep seeing you
Dressed up in rags with pointed shoes
Why do I remember you
And the way you looked at me
When our innocence had flown away

My whole world has come crashing down
Laughing as it hit the ground
The young girls still look clean and white
Romance will never die

So why do I keep seeing you
Your face is wet and bathed in blue
So why do I remember you
And the way you looked at me
Everything there is too see

I'm lying by the riverside
Sleeping under a sunny sky
The young girls are flowers floating by
Romance will never die
