No Cure.

No Cure.

When you were young,
When you were just a babe,
A fever came to you,
Nearly took you away,
But your mother so faithful,
Held you in her arms,
And she nursed you to health,
And she kept you from harm,

O’, but now,
I’m the fever you bear,
And your mother can’t save you,
From something so rare,

There’s no cure for my love,
There’s no hope, there’s no getting away,
You’d better watch what you do,
You’d better mean what you say,
There’s no cure for my love I’m afraid,

O’, at night,
Before you go to sleep,
You’ll get out of yourself,
And get down on your knees,
And you’ll pray for your soul,
And you’ll pray for your life,
And you’ll pray for the things,
That you wish for tonight,

As for me,
I will always be there,
When it comes to my love,
You just haven’t a prayer,

There’s no cure for my love,
There’s no hope, there’s no getting away,
You’d better watch what you do,
You’d better mean what you say,
There’s no cure for my love I’m afraid,

O’, and time,
Is the answer you’re told,
A place to hide,
All the hurt that you hold,
And in weeks,
Or in months or in some cases years,
You can face it again,
Without any fear,

But for me,
Time stands still,
You will never forget me,
No, you never will,

There’s no cure for my love,
There’s no hope, there’s no getting away,
You’d better watch what you do,
You’d better mean what you say,
There’s no cure for my love I’m afraid,

You’d better watch what you do,
You’d better watch how you pray,
There’s no cure for my love I must say,
There’s no cure.
