Lyrics



introduction
So, you've come to tell me he needs me now.
So, you've come to tell me he wants me now.
This must mean he's down for the count of 10.
That's the time he wants to make up and latch on again.
(Go back to him.)
Oh, no!
(Go back to him.)
No!
(You've got to go back to him.)

verse 1
Never!
That is the word I use.
Never!
That is the word I choose.
Tell him that you really tried.
Tell him that really I'd rather die.

verse 2
(Never!)
Never is much too quick.
(Never!)
He makes me much too sick.
Let him save his own hateful hide.
Let him; no, I would rather die.

refrain 1
(Never!)
I hear that his misery is fantastic.
(Never!)
Without me I hope he'll do something drastic.
(Never!)
It's his turn to suffer alone in sorrow.
(Never!)
Never means forever, not just tomorrow.
Never is the word I seek.
Never is the word I shriek.

bridge
(Go back; go back to him.)
Never!

refrain 2
(Never!)
[synical laugh]
(Never!)
[cynical laugh]
(Never!)
I've been told I'm cold.
(Never!)
Never means forever, not just tomorrow.
Never is the word I seek.
Never is the word I shriek.
