How Many Times (Love is All)

Written/Published By: Eric Saint Nicholas (Ascap)


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?

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?
