All my life has been a myste ry
You and I were never ever meant to be
That's why I call my love for you a myste ry
Different coun try
You and I have always lived in a different coun try
And I know that airline tic kets don't grow on a tree
So what kept us a part is plain for me to see
That much at least is not really a myste ry
I live in a houseboat on an estua ry
Which is handy for my work with the Port Au thority
But I know you would have found it insanita ry
Taken a violent dislike to me,
I'd be foolish to i gnore the possibili ty
That if we'd ever actually met, you might have hated me
Still, that's not the only problem that I can see
Dead since 19 73
You've been dead now... wait a minute, let me see...
Fifteen years come next Janua ry
As a human being you are history
So why do I still long for you?
Why is my love so strong for you?
Why did I write this song for you?
W (silence) ell, I guess it's just the myst ery
