I can laugh about it now, but couldn’t then

You made me ache, so I went for a run

In the driving rain

Through your neighbourhood streets

And there you were, a silhouette in the wet night air

Me in my pumps in the pouring rain 

A kind of despair upon finding you there

Couldn’t whisper your name


Oh, I can laugh about it now by your side

Oh, I can laugh about it now by your side

Oh, sha la la la, we’re all in trouble

Is there room in the sky for all of us angels here?


And the very next day, through the shrieks of the crowd

Came your careless self, your oh-so-couldn’t careless self

And you just pass me by, your friends catch my eyes

“We know you love her, we saw you dancing with her shadow”

And I couldn’t disagree, and for the life of me

I could call out your name, and call out your name,

And call out your name


Oh, I can laugh about it now by your side

Oh, I can laugh about it now by your side

Oh, sha la la la, we’re all in trouble

Is there room in the sky for all of us angels here?


Sha la la la, oh, we’re all in trouble,

Or is there room in the sky for all of us angels here?


I can laugh about it now

I can laugh about it now by your side


Oh, sha la la la, we’re all in trouble

Or is there room in the sky for all of us angels here?
