Maureen Mcgovern — Something I Thought I'd Never Do lyrics

Too many times,
I've sat across a table
Lending a sympathetic ear
Knowing exactly what I'll hear
Concealing my impatience
With a friend who falls apart
Who's let some guy walk off with her heart
He's gone, she can't forget, it's nothing new
Depending upon your point of view

So many times,
Women have a weakness
For building their lives around a man
Something I never understand
But you and I were different
We were free to come and go
Until you left for good, how could I know?
The tears, the wasted time, the longing for you
Something I thought I'd never do

My days are filled with the worst clichés
I watch the phone and dare it not to ring
Imagining your call and what I'd say
Eating alone is worse than anything
Except...are those footsteps in the hall?

The friends I see
Tell me time is healing
Everyone tries to be so kind
Kindness could make me lose my mind
I sit up late at night
And watch old movies on TV
Though I could never tell you what I see
Sometimes, sometimes, I cry the whole night through
Something, it's something
Something I thought I'd never do
