I've been here once before, but I'm afraid to admit
that once is enough to know where I’m going again.

To give you all the time that I was told to give
would be too long to tell—
And what would it have helped?
And you don't know where I’d stay another day,
but you know what I’d come here with.

Will I work this out before I see you again?

Everyone’s got a rope for hanging off,
everyone's got a road paved for lying along,
everyone’s got their loans—
Hurrah! for scraping along.
Have I got a lover’s pain to show now?

Will I work this out before I see you again?
