Terri - Lyrics by Ufo


Lyrics

Terri every time we talk we just disagree
Every chance we had is passing by
The simple things you say all drift away into the night
So don't let me know what i can't see

* terri is it over again
Lost in love
Everybody laughing at me
With eyes like a child
You smile when you hit the tide
Holding me captive
For the world to see

Every now and then i'd see that wild look in your eyes
It's in all the long shots that we tried
We used to hold on tight, run for the night
How far we'd go we couldn't see

* repeat

Every day goes by we get further and further away
Conversations end with nothing much to say
Maybe we've made a mistake it's too late we'll never know
We can't change it girl 'cause i just have to go

[instrumental]

* repeat

On these lonely nights i reach out for your love
This empty room feels cold and bare
Then i'll try the phone and swallow my pride
It's no good we've tried and tried

* repeat
