Rainy night in Soho
(Shane McGowan - Pogue Music Ltd/Perfect Songs Ltd)

I've been loving you a long time,
Down all the years, down all the days,
And I've cried for all your troubles,
Smiled at your funny little ways
We've watched our friends grow up together,
And we saw them as they fell,
Some of them fell into Heaven,
Some of them fell into Hell.
I took shelter from a shower,
And I stepped into your arms,
On a rainy night in Soho,
The wind was whistling all its charms.

Sometimes I wake up in the morning,
The ginger lady by my bed,
Covered in the cloak of silence,
I hear her talking in my head,
I'm not singing for the future,
I'm not dreaming of the past,
I'm not talking 'bout the first time,
I never think about the last,
Now this song is nearly over,
We may never find out what it means,
Still there's a lot I hold before me,
You're the measure of my dreams,
The measure of my dreams.
