Official Lyric Video


Lyrics

Loneliness remembers what happiness forgets
I had to lose you to recall
Life's not really all sunshine and laughter
Loneliness remembers what happiness forgets
And when you fall in love too fast
Sunshine doesn't last forever

After and ever, a drop of rain
First came the pleasure and then the pain
We were the talk of the town
Ask anybody around, they'll let you know

We were the fire that lit the stove
No other love is as bright as ours
And everything's turning around
Gone was the love I had found, you went away
Now I'm alone

Loneliness remembers what happiness forgets
And when you fall in love too fast
Sunshine doesn't last forever

After and ever, a drop of rain
First came the pleasure and then came
All the pain
