If You See Monique

"If you see Monique, give her my regards and tell her I'm doing well. Tell her that I realise she was right about everything and I've taken her advice and settled down. I know she's happy now. She doesn't need me around and I don't want to spoil things for her. Don't tell her where I am and what a mess I've made of my life. Cooped up in a cell 24 hours a day with just her photograph to talk to. But it's no more than I deserve for being a stubborn fool. You do a lot of thinking in solitary and at least I can take comfort from the fact that she's finally found the happiness she deserves. No thanks to me. All I ever did was let her down. So if you see Monique, wish her luck from me. Don't tell her I still love her and would do anything to turn back the clock." Nathan Black, This Side Of Life 




IF YOU SEE MONIQUE

If you see Monique, give her my regards 

Tell her I’m a different person now 

I’ve changed and I’m working hard 

I know I was chasing shadows 

But I’ve given up living on dreams 

I’ve thought about everything she said 

And now I know what she means 

 

But I’ve passed the point of no return 

And there’s no going back 

Can’t believe the fool I’ve been 

To let her down like that 

If you dare to break a promise 

Then prepare to take the blame 

Things can’t change

And still remain the same  

If you see Monique, give her all my love 

Tell her that I know the fool I’ve been 

Whatever was I thinking of? 

Convinced that I knew the answers 

So blind I wouldn’t see the light 

If I’d only took the time to listen 

I’d have realised she was right 

 

But I’ve passed the point of no return 

And there’s no going back 

Can’t believe the fool I’ve been 

To let her down like that 

If you dare to break a promise 

Then prepare to take the blame 

Things can’t change

And still remain the same 

If you see Monique, tell her I could cry 

When I think of all the missed opportunity 

When I think of all the wasted time 

Suddenly I feel much older 

And somehow a lot more wise 

And now when I look at her photograph 

I see the sadness in her eyes 

 

But I’ve passed the point of no return 

And there’s no going back 

Can’t believe the fool I’ve been 

To let her down like that 

If you dare to break a promise 

Then prepare to take the blame 

Things can’t change

And still remain the same
