Life it slips right by you 
Your dreams all left behind you
It's cold and rain is falling
A lonely day is dawning

O-o-o-oh, Green-eyed taxi rescue me
O-o-o-oh, Cause I'm half the man I used to be
O-o-o-oh, All of the loves I threw away
O-o-o-oh, And now my skies are turning grey

Love - the great surrender
Her arms so warm and tender
The high life, bet you've followed
Has left you sad and hollowed
