Alloway Grove Submit Correct Lyrics

Coming home again to see a girl
Thats prettier than a diamond shining in the sun, oh what fun!
I wonder if she's been naked in her room since I've been gone
I wonder if she's said to them as she said to me before

However much you use me baby, come on use me more
However much you use me baby, come on use me more

Oh, getting off the train to see a girl
Thats sweeter than an apple picked from Adam's tree, oh glory be!
And I wonder if she's been pressed against an unfamiliar wall
And said to all those men that she has said to me before

However much you want me, I swear I'll make you want me more
However much you want me, I swear I'll make you want me more
And more and more and more and more, whoa lord!

L-la la la la, la la la, l-la la la la
L-la la la la, la la la, l-la la la la
L-la la la la, la la la, l-la la la la
L-la la la la, la la la, l-la la la la

Arriving at the door just to be told
The girl I'm missings been in London for a while
No more Northern skies for her
They say she's left a letter up the stairs for everyone
It's pinned against her bedroom door for all the world to see

And it says
However much I loved you, you will always love me more
However much I loved you, you will always love me more
And I guess it's true
However much she loves me I will always love her more

L-la la la la, la la la, l-la la la la
L-la la la la, la la la, l-la la la la
L-la la la la, la la la, l-la la la la
L-la la la la, la la la, l-la la la la

L-la la la la, la la la, l-la la la la
L-la la la la, la la la, l-la la la la
L-la la la la, la la la, l-la la la la
L-la la la la, la la la, l-la la la la

And I'll love you more and more, I'll love you more
I'll love you more and more, I'll love you more
I'll love you more and more, I'll love you more
I'll love you more and more and more and more

I'll love you more and more, I'll love you more
I'll love you more and more, I'll love you more
I'll love you more and more and more and more
I'll love you more and more, I'll love you more

And I'll love you more and more, I'll love you more
I'll love you more and more, I'll love you more
I'll love you more and more, I'll love you more
I'll love you more and more and more and more

I'll love you more and more, I'll love you more
I'll love you more and more, I'll love you more
I'll love you more and more and more and more
I'll love you more and more, I'll love you more

I have returned to the Northern skies
Where the summer had not touched the clouds that pass above
Oh and I have returned to the somber greens
Of the days too early to come and too early to stay

And I have left a million stars
And I know shine so lightly, so clearly blue
And I have left the warmth of the sun
And a million adventures not yet begun

The great sense of passing through
The great sense of passing through
The great sense of passing through

Oh for once there was beauty here for me
Under these white Northern skies
And I felt the green was blacker and the blue was darker still
My roots are lying deeper than I ever think they will again

Heartache and poetry
Under these Northern skies

The great sense of passing through
The great sense of passing through
The great sense of passing through

Slow down, lie down
Remember it's just you and me
Don't sell out, bow out
Remember how this used to be

I just want you closer, is that alright?
Baby let's get closer, tonight

Grant my last request and just let me hold you
Don't shrug your shoulders, lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we're going nowhere
But one last time let's go there, oh, lay down beside me

And I've found that I'm bound
To wander down that one way road, oh
And I realized all about your lies
And Im the wiser than the fool that I was before

I just want you closer, is that alright?
Baby let's get closer, tonight

Grant my last request and just let me hold you
Don't shrug your shoulders, lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we're going nowhere
But one last time let's go there, lay down beside me

Baby baby baby
Tell me how can, how can this be wrong?

Grant my last request and just let me hold you
Don't shrug your shoulders, lay down beside me
And sure I can accept that we're going nowhere
But one last time let's go there, lay down beside me

Grant my last request and just let me hold you
Don't shrug your shoulders, lay down beside me
And sure I can accept that we're going nowhere
But one last time let's go there, lay down beside me
