Lyrics

It Started out so innocent
It started out so right
We fell in love through conversation
Underneath the stars that night

But Love goes out the window
when there's no money coming in the door
With dreams this big and little cash how could
you not want for more

So there's no need for explanations, no painful goodbyes
No expectations, no more second tries
No sad stories, no more fantasies
Chock it up to luck or maybe destiny but

No apologies are necessary, honest baby

Sometimes the wind will take us
to a place we did not plan
Sometimes it's just not enough
to do the best we can

I smoke too many cigarettes
and I belong alone
I've always been your gypsy baby that you
tried to keep at home

So I'll play our song one more time tonight
and I wish I could make everything all right
I wish you were a gambler and me your lucky streak
I wish I was stronger, maybe not so weak

But no apologies are necessary, are they baby

Tell me how did love ever get so complicated
it was never this way oh no back when we were dating
But the truth of the matter is this is what we made it
and somewhere inside the spark just faded

So there's no need for explanations, no painful goodbyes
No expectations, no more second tries
No sad stories, no more fantasies
Chock it up to luck or maybe destiny but


But no apologies are necessary, or are they baby?


No Apologies- Naked & Alone C.D.
