LAISSEZ-FAIRE

©Kev Gray 2006

 

Laissez-faire, thatís what I told her

When she asked me where Iíd been

Seems unfair, then thereís my shoulder

Itís the way itís always been

 

You can go find another, say farewell to our bed of roses

I always knew Time would take you from me

 

Laissez-faire, so thatís your answer

You know you drive me round the bend

So Laissez-faire, will be my answer

When I sleep with all your friends

 

You know Iíve never loved another,

Spent my life on our bed of roses

But more thorns, less flowers, now I see

Now I see

 

Itís a life full of waterfalls on our way to the sea

Got no time for your concrete walls, your man-made beach

You can keep your canal boat rides , the tranquility

Iím going over my waterfalls and see where they lead me

 

Laissez-faire: it`s for teenagers

Not a girl of 33

You were my prayer, now youíre my cancer,

Eating away at me

So Iíll go find another, bid adieu to our bed of roses

So au revoir, cherie,

Ma cherie

 

Itís a life full of waterfalls on our way to the sea

Got no time for your concrete walls, your man-made beach

You can keep your canal boat rides, Ohthe tranquility

I`m going over my waterfalls and see where they lead me
