The sheets won't need changing everyday 
The freezer supply should last a year 
Those hidden little points that you're away 
Nothing much has changed since you were here 

Our paths will cross some day 
Our paths will cross some day 
While you're out jogging and I'm sat snogging 
Some fool on a lakeside bench 

And when she calls I hope it's you that dials 
I hope it's you that feels this love inside 
And when I touch her I hope it's you that smiles 
And when I die I hope it's you I'm beside 
To die with her would be a worthless lie 
To die with her would be a worthless die 
To die together would be worth a try 
To die together would be worth a try 

The family pack seems larger than it should 
Two for one's no good when there's just one 
I'd raise a bigger smile if I could 
But me minus you equals none 

Our paths will cross some day 
Our paths will cross some day 
When you're out fishing and I'm sat wishing 

You instead of him 
Our paths will cross some day 
Our paths will cross some day 
When you're out exercising and I'm there prising 
The pants of I my latest sin 

And when we kiss she knows it's you I kiss 
'Cause when we kiss I always start to cry 
You just can't cover up these lying lips 
When I die I hope it's you I'm beside 
To die with her would be a worthless lie 
To die with her would be a worthless die 
To die together would be worth a try 
To die together would be worth a try 

An ambulance flashed past me in the street 
Just yards from where we were to meet 
I was half hoping you were dead meat 
That it was you that was under the sheet 

And as you lay there alone in the ward 
Fumbling for the keys to death's door 
At least I'd have summoned up the nerve 
To whisper you these words 

Finally! Quietly! Actually! 
I love you!
