Separate Lives - Lyrics by Alan Parson Project, The


Lyrics

Eric woolfson - lead vocal

It's been a long road
We've walked the last mile
We reach the same conclusion
And we stop for a while

Together we know
The way we must go
We're leaving an illusion
That's for us to share
Only for us to share

We live our separate lives
And go our different ways
Cause we don't see eye to eye
And we can't stand face to face

We live our separate lives
While counting all the days
Till the two of us arrive
In another time and place

We share the same thoughts
We read the same lines
We meet on sad occasions
And in happier times

A spoken goodbye
And both of us try
To walk away in silence
That's for us to share,
Only for us to share

We live our separate lives
And go our different ways
Cause we don't see eye to eye
And we can't stand face to face

We live our separate lives
While counting all the days
Till the two of us arrive
In another time and place

And always goodbye
But heaven knows why
I can't erase the memory
That's for us to share
Only for us to share
Only for us to share

We live our separate lives
And go our different ways
Cause we don't see eye to eye
And we can't stand face to face

We live our separate lives
While counting all the days
Till the two of us arrive
In another time and place
