Your name froze on the winter air An empty bench in soho square Forgotten now I turn away Just save me for a rainy day But don't be sorry I don't want to hear it baby
My feet froze in the winter chill I knew I'd probably get ill But I was praying we could fill An empty bench and still You're so sorry But I don't want your pity baby
It's all yours now please don't tease The pigeons shiver in the naked trees And I'll do anything but Please don't hurt me Just kiss me quick 'cos it's my birthday And I feel so small I don't know why But no I'm not too old to cry
An empty bench in soho square If you'd have come you'd have found me there But you never did 'cos you don't care And I'm so sorry baby I don't mind loneliness too much But when I met you I was touched And that was good enough for me But do we always have to be sorry Why can't we just be happy baby?
One day you'll be waiting there No empty bench in soho square And we'll dance around like we don't care And I'll be much too old to cry And you'll kiss me quick in case I die Before my birthday
One day you'll be waving there No empty bench in soho square No I don't know the reason why I'll love you till the day I die But one day you'll be waiting there Come summertime in soho square And I'll be painting stars up in the sky Before I get too old to cry Before my birthday I hope I see those pigeons fly Before my birthday In soho square on my birthday
