not a day goes by
(Bap Kennedy)

Oh let's get on with the game,
There's no need to wonder why
You don't mention my name
Here's mud in your eye
Did we waste those precious years?
Does it ever cross your mind?
Does it ever cross mine?
Let me say, not a day goes by

Oh you're not long for this world
You will always find
Battalions of trouble
Marching behind
Still returning like a ghost
To the scene of the crime
If I could go back in time...
Anyway, not a day goes by

Well I had to take that chance
It was now or never
I had to be with her,
She's the apple of my eye.
Well, regrets I got a few
And the multiplay
Like the stars in the sky
Anyway, not a day goes by

So let's get on with the game
There's no need to wonder why
Do I think of you and I?
Let me say, not a day goes by

(Bap Kennedy)

Jimmy Sanchez
Now the moon and stars have gone
I am helpless
But I will try to carry on
I know I must change

And I curse the boss
Who sent you there and made you stay,
And I would gladly give all the gold
in San Jose
Just to hear your voice

Chrorus
Because the fires of love, the fires of love
They still burn

In their mansions
Safe tonight behind the door
While I suffer,
I don't want to suffer any more.
I know I must change

Because the fires of love, the fires of love
They must burn

Jimmy Sanchez
The flames of love will guide you home
To your baby
To everything you've ever known
I know I must change

Chrorus
Repeat 1st verse

  • 1.6 maybe I will
  • 1.10 the beauty of you

maybe I will
(Bap Kennedy)

My foolish heart
Is broken today
I wanted you to love me
In my foolish way
Now I can see clearly
From the top of this hill
Maybe you don't want to go on
But maybe I will

My foolish dreams
Are scattered and gone
I wanted you to see them
But I've lost every one
Now I have nothing
Only time to kill
Maybe I won't make it alone
Or maybe I will

My foolish words
Came out awkwardly
I wanted you to hear them
But you threw them back at me
And all my good reasons
Fell out in a spill
Maybe I'll never have the courage I need
Or maybe I will
Maybe I'll never, ever really know
Or maybe I will

the beauty of you
(Bap Kennedy)

I just wanted to live a quiet life
Keep my head down
Come home every night
But it's all gone to hell
All my good plans fell through
Since I stumbled on the beauty of you

You won't let this chance slip away
Just to keep those demons at bay
And you'll gamble on a glimpse
Of a heart that is true
Baby that's the beauty of you

Looks like our work is cut out
You're everything that dream about

Oh you just get better like wine
We should make the most of our time
And I know that you want
The same things I do
Baby that's the beauty of you
