never, never, never: because i never forget

my parents were big fans of music and they loved Shirley Bassey.  there weren't any records in the house, save for the vinyls of the James Bond movie OSTs.  my mother hardly sang in the house. it was always my father.  he used to be in a combo, after all.  but this one, she sang whenever she heard it play on the radio on Sundays.  and she sang it well.

"Never, Never, Never"

I'd like to run away from you, but if you never found me I would die 
I'd like to break the chains you put around me, but I know I never will 
You stay away and all I do is wonder why the hell I wait for you 
But when did common sense prevail for lovers when we know it never will 
Impossible to live with you, but I know, I could never live without you 
For whatever you do 

I never, never, never want to be in love with anyone but you
You never treat me like you should, so what's the good of loving as I do? 
Although you always laugh at love, nothing else would be good enough for you 
Impossible to live with you, but I know, I could never live without you 
For whatever you do 

I never, never, never want to be in love with anyone but you
You make me laugh, you make me cry, you make me live, you make me die, for you 
You make me sing, you make me sad, you make me glad, you make me mad, for you 

I love you, hate you, love you, hate you 

But I'll want you till the world stops turning
For whatever you do 
I never, never, never want to be in love with anyone but you
I love you, hate you, love you, hate you 

But I'll want you till the world stops turning
For whatever you do 
I never, never, never want to be in love with anyone but you
I love you, hate you, love you, hate you 

But I'll want you till the world stops turning
For whatever you do 
I never, never, never want to be in love with anyone but you

it is hard living all alone.  i may seem to be okay, but there are days when i'm not and i miss them. this is one of those days.
