Slow Boat To China

Was always there
You were the tears, me the shoulder
If I needed care
You couldn't have been much colder
Because when it comes to push or shove
You were taking but giving no love

Will time build love?
No, this love ain't getting stronger
Unfulfilled love
The whole thing couldn't be much wronger
Cheating and lying and making me hurt
I guess I wasn't worth the effort

(You said) TAKE A SLOW BOAT TO CHINA
YOU COULDN'T HAVE BEEN ANY UNKINDER
TAKE A SLOW BOAT TO CHINA
WELL NOTHING WOULD SUIT ME ANY FINER
A SLOW BOAT TO CHINA
A SLOW BOAT TO ANYWHERE WILL DO
ANYWHERE AWAY FROM YOU

Took a knife
To make it hurt more you made it duller
Cut up my life
Still I never saw your true color
Until the time of your attack
Right 'til you stabbed me in the back

Those sad, sad eyes
Sad enough to make Satan kind
And sympathize
But no way the devil ain't divine
You can't find love where none exists
You took my love then I was dismissed

(You said) TAKE A SLOW BOAT TO CHINA
