Over my shoulder

Lyrics

playLooking back over my shoulder
playI can see that look in your eye
playI never dreamed it could be over
playI never wanted to say goodbye

playLooking back over my shoulder
playWith an aching deep in my heart
playI wish that we were starting over
playOh instead of drifting so far apart

playEverybody told me you were leaving
playFunny I should be the last to know
playBaby please tell me that I'm dreaming
playI just never want to let you go

playLooking back over my shoulder
playI can see that look in your eye
playTurning my heart over and over
playI never wanted to say goodbye

playI don't mind everybody laughing
playBut it's enough to make a grown man cry
playCos I can feel you slipping through my fingers
playI don't even know the reason why

playEvery day it's a losing battle
playJust to smile and hold my head up high
playCould it be that we belong together
playBaby won't you give me one more try
playOne more try

playLooking back over my shoulder
playI can see that look in your eye
playI never dreamed it could be over
playI never wanted to say goodbye

playLooking back over my shoulder
playOh with an aching feeling inside
playCutting me up, deeper and deeper
playFills me with a sadness that I can't hide

playLooking back over my shoulder
playI can see that look in your eye
playI never dreamed no no it could be over
playI never wanted to say goodbye

playLooking back over my shoulder
playI can see that look in your eye
