The End Of A Love Affair lyrics

Edward c. redding

So I walk a little too fast and I drive a little too fast
And Im reckless its true, but what else can you do at the
End of a love affair?

So I talk a little too much, and I laugh a little too much
And my voice is too loud, when Im out in a crowd
So that people are apt to stare

Do they know, do they care, that its only that Im lonely
And low as can be?
And the smile on my face isnt really a smile at atll!

So I smoke a little too much, and I drink a little too much
And the tunes I request are not always the best
But the ones where the trumpets blare!

So I go at a maddening pace, and I pretend that its taking
Your place
But what else can you do, at the end of a love affair
