Lyrics

You're like a sailor with a girl on every shore
Stay with her now for they won't see you no more
Like a gypsy forever on the run
Stay for a while you look for a whore

Like that sailor leaves, come back again
Stay for a while and they won't see you again
Like that gypsy caravan, forever on the run
You stay for a while, then you pick up and go

CHORUS
  That's how you show your love for me
  That's how you show your love for me, you're like
  Here today, gone tomorrow
  Each time you come, you leave a little sorrow, you're like
  Here today, gone tomorrow
  Each time you come, you leave a little sorrow

You're like that big big star that's torn the town apart
Leaving everyone to console their aching heart
Like that snow that fell, looks so wrong and out of place
Stay for a while and then you leave without a trace

That's 'xactly like that star that tore the town apart
Leaving everyone to console their aching heart
Like that snow that fell, looks so wrong and out of place
Stay for a while and then you leave without a trace

That's how you show your love for me
That's how you show your love for me
Here today, gone tomorrow
Each time you come, you leave a little sorrow, you're like
Here today, gone tomorrow
Each time you stay, you leave a little sorrow

Here today, gone tomorrow, hmmm
You're like
Here today, gone tomorrow
Each time you come, you leave a little sorrow
Here today, gone tomorrow
Each time you come, you leave a little sorrow

Here today
Here today, but gone tomorrow
