(And Aubrey was her name,
A not so very ordinary girl or name.
But who's to blame for a love that wouldn't bloom
For the hearts that never played in tune.
Like a lovely melody that everyone can sing.
Take away the words that rhyme it doesn't mean a thing
And Aubrey was her name.
We tripped the lights and danced together to the moon
But where was June. No it never came around.
And if it did it never made a sound,
Maybe I was absent or was listening too fast,
Catching all the words, but then the meaning going past,
And how I miss the girl, and I'd go a thousand miles
Around the world just to be closer to her than to me.
And Aubrey was her name.)
I never knew her name
(I never knew her,)
But I loved her just the same,
(but I loved her just the same,)
I loved her name
(I loved her name.
Wish that I had found the way
And the reasons that would make her stay.)
I have learned to lead a life
(I have learned to lead a life)
Apart from all the rest
(Apart from all the rest)
If I can't have the one I want,
(If I can't have the one I want,)
I'll do without the rest.
(I'll do without the rest.)
(And God I miss the girl and I'd go a
Million times around the world just to say
She had been mine for a day)
(Just a day)
