"Lovers" by Adrian Mannering

Soldiers in dreams are like lovers that come without warning
And take you by surprise when you think you must make it alone
Sooner or later the presence is only a memory
But you know that without them you'd never have rolled back the stone.

As lovers lie sleeping I find myself traveling toward you
The morning arises, the wind is as soft as a sigh
And the silence of angels means praying is just an illusion
The pain and the passion the tears and the laughs and the lies.

My darling once told me that loving was better than living
And I told her survival for me was the easier game
I couldn't live with her and now it's I can't live without her
I thought I'd feel different but somehow I still feel the same.

So if lovers are losers then what price the game we are playing
And what price the man who has not got the money to pay
Whatever's before me is nothing to what I have come through
For the lost and the lonely and those who have nothing to say.

My darling once told me that loving was better than living
And I told her survival for me was the easier game
I couldn't live with her and now it's I can't live without her
I thought I'd feel different but somehow I still feel the same.

I got the song and lyric from The Irish Descendants' CD "Gypsies and Lovers" and know nothing about the songwriter or his song. I like the song and the CD on which I found it.
