You came into my life like rain upon a barren desert
One smile and I was born again
I felt sure it wasnt too late
Id find strength to make me go straight
I had love, and threw it away
Why did they lead me astray
For last night in Soho I let my life go

I never told you of some things Ive done Im so ashamed of
I thought my foolish past was over and done
Id proof Id make a new start
Id try with all of my heart
I had dreams and broke them in two
Im just not worthy of you
For last night in Soho I let my life go

Well, hi there, kid, you aint been around for quite some little while
See you got yourself a real cute doll, youre living life in style
But boy, dont get above your station if you dont want aggravation
Got a little job for you, this is what you gotta do, boy!

Thats how last night in Soho I let my life go

Dont cry my baby, as they lead me where no love can help me
Dont stay around to watch me go
Just forget there once was a time
You were proud to call yourself mine
I had love right here in my hand
Why could I not understand
For last night in Soho I let my life go
For last night in Soho I let my life go
