That’s my name.

You were the love 
for certain of my life 
you were simply my beloved wife 
I don’t know for certain 
how I’ll live my life 
now alone without my beloved wife 
my beloved wife 

I can’t believe 
I’ve lost the very best of me 

you were the love 
for certain of my life 
you were simply my beloved wife 
I don’t know for certain 
how I’ll live my life 
now alone without my beloved wife 
my beloved wife 

I can’t believe 
I’ve lost the very best of me 

you were the love 
for certain of my life 
for 50 years simply my beloved wife 
with another love I’ll never lie again 
it’s you I can’t deny 
it’s you I can’t defy 
a depth so deep 
into my grief 
without my beloved soul 
I renounce my life 
as my right 
now alone without my beloved wife 
my beloved wife 

my beloved wife 
my love is gone she suffered long 
in hours of pain 
my love is gone 
now my suffering begins 
my love is gone 
would it be wrong if I should 
surrender all the joy in my life 
go with her tonight? 

my love is gone she suffered long 
in hours of pain 
my love is gone 
would it be wrong if I should 
just turn my face away from the light 
go with her tonight? 


1-Ooh, jealousy
Ooh, my jealousy

Is she fine, so well-bred
The perfect girl, a social deb?
And is she the sort, that you’ve always thought
Could make, could make you what you’re not?
(repeat 1)

Is she smart, so well-read
Are there books, are there novels by her bed?
And is she the sort that you’ve always said
Could satisfy your head?

Ooh, jealousy
La, la, la…ooh, my jealousy
Na, na, na, na…my jealousy

Does she talk, the way I do?
Is her voice, is her voice reminding you
Of the promises, the little white lies, too
Sometimes, tell me, while she’s touching you
Just by mistake, accidentally, do you say my name?

I may know the word
but not say it
I may know the truth
but not face it
I may hear a sound
a whisper sacred and profound
but turn my head
indifferent

I may know the word
but not say it
I may love the fruit
but not taste it
I may know the way
to comfort and to soothe
a worried face
but fold my hands
indifferent

If I’m on my knees
I’m begging now
if I’m on my knees
groping in the dark
I’d be paying for deliverance
from the night into day

but it’s all grey here
it’s all grey to me

I may know the word
but not say it
this may be the time
but I might waste it
this may be the hour
something move me
someone prove me wrong
before the night comes
with indifference

if I’m on my knees
I’m begging now
if I’m on my knees
groping in the dark
I’d be praying for deliverance
from the night into the day

but it’s all grey here
but it’s all grey to me

I recognize the walls inside me
I recognize them all
I’ve paced between them
chasing demons down
until they fall
in fitful sleep
enough to keep their strength
enough to crawl
into my head
with tangled threads
they riddle me to solve

again and again and again
