Comes on over wants to drown his sorrows
Got a two-seater sofa, and some whiskey in a bottle
Broken in tears with the weight of the world on his shoulder.

Oh my god, Sam, what’s happened to ya?
Says his wife’s left with his two-year old daughter
To live in Acapulco with some idiot she only met two months ago.

I wish I could tell you that
If it was me, I would be a good wife.
I would never doubt you
Ours would be a good life.
And we could be better than so many
I would never stress you
About bringing home the plenty

So all these things,
Another life, I’ll have to wait
Would have been perfect
If only God had wanted it
But you’ll never know when
We’ll get old.
Let’s not talk about it
Rest your head up on my shoulder.

You’ll never know
You’ll never know
You’ll never know the good life
You’ll never know the good life
You’ll never know the good life

Somebody once told me that there are watchers and there are doers in the world
I guess I’m a watcher, not by choice, it’s just what I was hurled.
We’re just two friends, it’s not a risky situation.

I wish I could tell you that
If it was me, I would be a good wife.
I would never doubt you
Ours would be a good life.
And we could be better than so many
I would never stress you
About bringing home the plenty

So all these things,
Another life, I’ll have to wait
Would have been perfect
If only God had wanted it
But you’ll never know when
We’ll get old.
Let’s not talk about it
Rest your head up on my shoulder.

You’ll never know
You’ll never know
You’ll never know the good life
You’ll never know the good life
You’ll never know the good life

Rest your head up on my shoulder (I’m so tired, you can see)
Now that life’s a little colder (I could love you simply)
And even if you’ll never know (Wouldn’t leave if it was me)
My love will never run away like the sunshine
Good time friend, not just the good time

So all these things,
Another life, I’ll have to wait
Would have been perfect
If only God had wanted it
But you’ll never know when
We’ll get old.
Let’s not talk about it
Rest your head up on my shoulder.

You’ll never know
You’ll never know
You’ll never know the good life
You’ll never know the good life
You’ll never know the good life
