How Many Times (Love is All)

Sometimes you bring me wine, today from a bitter vine
Some nights your eyes are sweet, but now they’re cold, so cold and discreet
Still it’s for you I fell and I think of no one else
Today you’re all I want..
But darling you're not the one

How many times, how many times, how many times
Must I watch this thing go wrong?
How many ways, for how many days, and how many nights
Must a lonesome heart be strong?

I take another out tonight, first date at the opera
I can’t help but treat her nice, when she seems to have no flaws
She’s a writer and she can sing, music was her first love
Serenade you all night long, but then..
She might date you for the song
 
So how many times, tell how many times, how many times
Must my hopes be broken down?
And how many ways, for how many days, and how many nights
Must the strength to love be found?

Flowers from a broken hearted man must feel just like…
The crystalline tears that have fallen away from a girl lead on and astray
Should I carry on? Should I carry on?
I don’t mind how many times, no, how many times (oh no)
‘Cause love is all

With open eyes she sees, my new girl thinks just like me
But add 2,000 miles, and take away her touch
To hide the tears and smile..
Was just too damn much

How many times, how many times, how many times
Must I watch this thing go wrong?
And how many ways, for how many days, and how many nights
Must a lonesome heart be, must a lonesome heart be, must a lonesome heart be strong?
