"It was 20 years ago today. They gave Victoria away."



They say it’s better since the day that changed

They say it’s better ‘cuz we’re all the same

Even though that is so

I just couldn’t let it go


Should I tell her I miss her very much?

Should I tell her although we are not the same

I just love to feel this way

Who’s to tell me what to say?

No one’s living at the present

So why should I? x2


The tough gets going when the going’s tough

But you play rough and you’ll always have your way

You will tell us that’s your love

I just couldn’t feel the same


Does it matter that she’s leaving me?

Does it matter I’ve been left behind?

Even though that is so

Why should I even care?

No one’s living at the present

So why should I? x2

(middle eight)

No one’s living at the present

So why should I? x2
