A Rainy Night in Soho

A Rainy Night in Soho

Author: Shane McGowan
I’ve been loving you a long time
Down all the years
down all the days
And I’ve cried for all your troubles smiled at your funny little ways we watched our friends grow up together and we saw them as they fell some of them fell into Heaven ,
some of them fell into Hell

I took shelter from a shower
and I stepped into your arms
On a rainy night in Soho
The wind was whistling all its charms
I sang you all my sorrows
You told me all your joys whatever happened to that old song
to all those little girls and boys
Now the song is nearly over
we may never find out what it means but there’s a light I hold before me
and you’re the measure of my dreams
the measure of my dreams

Sometimes I wake up in the morning
the gingerlady by my bed
covered in a cloak of silence
I hear you in my head I’m not singing for the future
I’m not dreaming of the past I’m not talking of the first time
I never think about the last
now the song is nearly over
we may never find out what it means still there’s a light I hold before me
you’re the measure of my dreams
the measure of my dreams
