As The Years Go Passing By Lyrics

by Sting

Ah, the blues.
The ball and chain that is 'round every English musician's leg.
In fact, EVERY musician's leg.
Tryin' to kick it off, baby?
No, no.
You'll just never do it.
And these are the blues of time,
And the blues of a woman,
And a man thinkin' of her
As time goes by.

There is nothin' I can do
If you leave me here to cry
There is nothin' I can do
If you leave me here to cry
You know, my love will follow you, baby,
Mmm, until the day I die

I've given you all I own;
That is one thing you cannot deny
Oh...I've given you all I own;
That is one thing you cannot deny
And my love will follow you, baby,
Yeah,
'Til the day this man dies

I've got failure all around me,
No matter how hard I try
I've got failure;
It's all around me,
No matter how hard I
Try, try
You know, my ghost will haunt you, baby,
Until the day you stop down and die
Well, you better get up
Right now, right now

Well...
You think that you have left me behind
And that with your other man you're safe
And you're away from me, baby, but uh,
One o' these days you're gonna break down and cry
Because there is no escape from this man
Because this man's love is so strong,
He's gonna haunt you
You know, my love will follow you,
Mmm, until the day I die

There is just one thing I want to tell you before I go
I'm gonna leave it
I'm gonna leave it
Leave it up to you
So long,
baby, bye-bye
Hey, I'm gonna leave it up to you,b aby
So long,
baby, bye-bye

Well, you know my love will follow you,
Mmm, 'til the day I die
'Til the day I die
'Til the day I die
'Til the day I die
'Til the day I die
'Til the day I am dead
'Til the day that they rest my head
'Til the day I die
'Til the day I, I, I, I die
'Til the day I die
'Til the day I die
'Til the day I die
'Til the day that you die and I die
'Til the day I die
'Til the day I die
'Til the day I die
'Til the day I die
'Til the day I die
'Til the day I die
'Til the day I die
'Til the day I die
Die
Die
Die
Die
