Previously unreleased


She don’t call me baby anymore
And I don’t call her my girl
But these things take time
I’m always on her mind
And she is on mine

And I don’t call her sweetheart anymore
And she don’t call me her man
But the path we choose
Is destined to lose
And now we’re through again

I don’t wanna be the one to choke
The rope’s so tight and the line’s so thin
We both know what we want
But we just can’t win
The game’s not set and the match not won
I’m running on the wrong side of luck

I was smoking weed in a daydream
Hanging with my band
On the day that you called me
It was your name flashing up
Thought I didn’t give a fuck
Now I know I’m not over you

Cos I’ve been knocking beers back
Smashed since that day
I’ve been sleeping with some girls
But girl it ain’t the same
Cos when we touch
Our love flows down through the river
To the river’s end

I don’t call her number anymore
She’s not the one for me
But the times we spent
I’ll never forget
Just wasn’t meant to be
