Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark — Joan Of Arc lyrics

A little catholic girl who's fallen in love
A face on a page, a gift from above
She should have known better than to give her heart
She should have known better than to ever part without me, without me
I gave her everything that I ever owned
I think she understood though she never spoke
She shouldn't ought to try to be that way
She shouldn't have to go there ever again without me, without me
Now listen to us good and listen well
Listen to us all and everything we tell
We should have known better than to give her away
We should've known better to this very day, without me, without me
Listen Joan of Arc all you've got to do
(is) say the right words and I'll be coming through
Hold you in my arms and take you right away

And now she's on her way to another land
We never understood why she gave her hand
She shouldn't ought to promise
'Cos it's just pretend
I know she doesn't mean it and she'll leave again
without me, without me
Without me, without me
