1940’s Lyrics: I saw you with her last night

Many of these songs are very wistful; many about love affairs gone wrong. This is one of them. Jools has set this to music, beautifully; we just need to fiddle with it a bit more and it is there, I think.

 

I saw you with her
Last night..
I saw her fingertips
linger
as she
touched
your shoulder
and you bent your head..

I saw you with her
Last night..
I saw her eyelashes
Quiver
As she
leaned
towards you
to hear what you said..

And then
I knew it was over..
I knew all the love
that we share
Was lost…
in the silk of her hair..

I saw you with her
Last night
I saw you see me
And hurry
To greet me
I saw the pain in your eyes ..
No need for Goodbyes..
No need for Goodbyes..
No need for goodbyes.
