Stephen Duffy And The Lilac Time - Talkin' Pessimism & Pain Blues lyrics

Everywhere I go there are more tears
With someone crying on a wall sobbing over beers
And waiting for a call to dispel old fears
We're all waiting for that call
Until, the only thing to do is learn to live
Surrounded by the tears
Everywhere I go there are more tears

Talk about pessimism and pain
I know that you feel sad, it's why you take cocaine
Believe depression is a fad enjoyed by the vain
And when you can't find the vein
Then you'll think the only thing to do is learn to live
Overwhelmed by pain

And talk about pessimism and pain
I'm here to tell you how to get home free
You throw away your key wrapped in the poetry
And all the faces your Mum and Dad will never see
But will you ever see
That you will never find a home until you learn to live
A thousand miles from home?

I'm here to tell you how to get home
I want to say something, some words to you
I know you saved my life but how about you?
I know you saved my life but what did you save?
Just an early grave
And I now spend almost every minute wishing I
Could say anything to you
I want to say something, anything to you

Everywhere I go there are more tears
