Over my shoulder

Lyrics

play Looking back over my shoulder
play I can see that   in your eye
play I never   it could be over
play I never wanted to say goodbye

play Looking back over my shoulder
play With an   deep in my heart
play I wish that we were   over
play Oh   of drifting so far apart

play Everybody told me you were  
play Funny I should be the last to  
play Baby please tell me that I'm dreaming
play I just never want to let you go

play Looking back over my shoulder
play I can see that look in your eye
play Turning my   over and over
play I never wanted to say goodbye

play I don't mind everybody  
play But it's enough to make a   man cry
play Cos I can feel you   @ through my fingers
play I don't even know the   why

play Every day it's a   battle
play Just to smile and   my head up high
play Could it be that we belong together
play Baby won't you give me one more try
play One more try

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

play Looking back over my shoulder
play Oh with an aching   inside
play Cutting me up, deeper and deeper
play Fills me with a sadness that I can't hide

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

play Looking back over my shoulder
play I can see that look in your eye
