Goodbye Geoffrey Drake

We are born in silence
There’s nothing or no one to blame
Soon we learn to fight or die trying
So my father said
Said we can still be friends
That don’t mean nothing
As it rushes to my head
You never loved you just pretend or something
Darling you really should have said

‘Cause all I wanted was a little love
All I needed was a little care
All I wanted was a little love and tenderness yeah

I hear the siren blaze in the distance
Her blood still on my hands
But there’s no way I would hide ’cause I loved her
Surely you understand

Your name is Geoffrey Drake
And you’re under arrest he said
Led me down the road in chains
Neighbours all turned their heads

Goodbye Geoffrey Drake
A name they never will forget
As poison rushes through my veins
And steals my final breath

And all I wanted was a little love
All I needed was a little care
All I wanted was a little love and tenderness yeah

We all die in silence
There’s nothing only ourselves to blame
Too much fight, no love gets you nowhere
I wish my mother had stayed

‘Cause all I wanted was a little love
All I needed was a little care
All I wanted was a little love and tenderness yeah

‘Cause all I wanted was a little love
All I needed was a little care
All I wanted was a little love and tenderness yeah
