The Mention of Your Name - Chris Rea

    Time goes by
    And every single tear
    It must have well run dry
    And the lonely nights
    Become a strange accepted way

    And the years go past
    Just like the old song says
    The pain with time has healed
    It could not last

    But oh a friend
    Like a fool mentions your name

    Sunny days, drunken nights
    You smile and say It's all right
    But oh the cold, cold rain
    At the mention of your name

    Forgive me please
    If I shrug my shoulders
    When I put my friends at ease
    As I get older
    It's not that I don't feel colder than before
    Oh I've become so good at hiding
    What I feel without confiding
    It's still the same
    At the mention of your name
