Little Bit Of Love

male vocal:
He steps off the train
Friday flowers for the wife
Busker sings Forever Young 
But now he's thirty five
All the suits in procession
A rose-scented trail
A briefcase a bouquet 
Carrying the holy grail

On the stairs there's a shy hello
The girl from eight smiles 
Do you think she might know?
The door clicks
The world disappears
He sighs
The flowers fall
No one hears

  dual female vocals:
  Where love may be weary
  Where time may move slow

female vocal:
Alone at the table
Midnight bottle of wine
A woman he remembers
So clearly this time
But she moved on
And it's been years
The radio's on
No one hears

  dual female vocals:
  Where love may be weary
  Where time may move slow

    male:   Beneath his shirt
    female: His heart was heaving
    male:   Through his skin
    female: Promises were breathing
    male:   The room is bare
    female: The simplest things are tough
    male:   And all he ever wanted
    both:   Was a little bit of love

female vocal:
The kids are bouncing 
Off the ceiling
One looks through her
Knows what she's feeling
The bell rings
And sounds the retreat
She gathers her books
She gathers her wits

  dual female vocals:
  Where love may be weary
  Where time may move slow

male vocal:
Quiet little bistro
A candle a rose
Talking about the road here
The highs and the lows
They'll wine and dine 
Then he'll be gone again
To kiss his wife 
Tuck his daughter in bed

  dual female vocals:
  Where love may be weary
  Where time may move slow

    female: Standing at the door
    male:   With her heart heaving
    female: Through her skin
    male:   Promises were breathing
    female: The room is bare
    male:   The simplest things are tough
    female: All she ever wanted
    both:   Was a little bit of love...

female vocal:
You can dream
And you can always pretend
(And) All you ever wanted
Was a little bit of love

    male vocal:
    In the dim light
    One hidden face 
    Burdened by shadows
    Lost in space
    There in the darkness
    A kiss complicates
    A smile slowly dances
    And the misery fades
