The Song With No Name

Shane MacGowan

Long years ago I fell in love with a lady proud and fair
So passionate were she and I, we made fire in the air
I loved her more than life itself, she loved me just the same
And it broke my heart to think we’d part if she ended the affair

But I was brutal, I was ignorant, I was cruel I was brash
I never gave a damn about the beauty that I smashed
No sadist I, I took delight in making my Love cry
Now I’d pray for a single kiss from her to be lashed and crucified

And now I feel this lady fair can never more be mine
Long gone are night in my lonely bed all suffering and crying
And though I fear that through this life she’ll only call me friend
‘Till I’m dead and buried in my grave my Love will never end
