After The Love Goes - Wet Wet Wet

It's been a year since I last saw Mary,
When she said goodbye
She casts a spell on my intention,
Ooh that's the reason why.
I'm taking my thoughts from a bottle lately,
And breaking them up in my mind,
And all my thoughts, they don't look pretty,
Ooh to my surprise

It's so hard to take what you're given
And it's so hard to give what you've got

After the love goes here I go,
there's no easy road

Well the bright lights of Memphis
Sounds like a real good time
But I lost my heart
And the money flowed like cherry wine.
So I don't remember the church bells ringing
Through the day or the night
But I kept my soul on my own
Not without a fight.

It's so hard to take what you're given
And it's so hard to give what you've got

After the love goes here I go,
There's no easy road

It's been a while since I last saw Mary
Wipe a tearful eye
Well I remember I first heard Mary
Say her last goodbye.
Breaking it up in my bottle lately
And making it up in my mind
And all my problems they don't look pretty,
Ooh, that's the bottom line.

It's so hard to take what you're given
And it's so hard to give what you've got

After the love goes here I go,
There's no easy road
