Old Flames

Ten For Ten - 3:38
FRANK:
I went down to London town, to stay for the weekend.
I'd been too long out on the road, I needed to catch up with my friends.
But I didn't expect to see you there,
And I didn't expect to care.
And I said, "Oh honey, if I had known
How the weekend would go,
And just how low I could go,
I would have stayed away."

BILLY:
I went back to town to pack my things and say goodbye
But I got talked into going for a drink, and one drink became a night.
But if I'd known that you were around
I wouldn't have gone down.
And I said "Oh honey, if I could have seen
Where this weekend would lead,
And seen the wreckage I'd leave,
I would have stayed away."

FRANK:
I always knew it was a bad idea,
I always knew that I should just steer clear.
I slipped up on a couple of months
And a couple of beers.
I'd love to fall in love again,
But we're no good at being friends.
It's just sex with the ex and the morning regrets.

But do you remember, back when we were
Young and unformed?
It was all so much easier to give of yourself,
To fall in love.
But as we get older and set in our ways,
We hearden our hearts,
But on nights like these
It can seem so much simpler to simply forget why we
Ever grew apart.

BILLY:
I don't really know what you were thinking,
If you even think at all.
A car crash in slow motion, the way that we fall into bed.
And I don't really know what I was drinking,
I don't usually drink at all,
But I woke up with a hotel bill and an ache in my head.
I'd love to fall in love again,
But we're no good at being friends.
It's just sex with the ex and the morning regrets.

BOTH:
And oh, honey, it won't be the same,
But oh, honey, we'll never change.
We're drawn back into the flame
When we both, both should have stayed, stayed away.
