  • There you are, lookin' just the same as you did last time I touched you
    And here I am, close to gettin' tangled up inside the thought of you
    Do you love him as much as I love her?
    And will that love be strong when old feelings start to stir?

    Looks like we made it
    Left each other on the way to another love
    Looks like we made it
    Or I thought so till today
    Until you were there everywhere
    And all I could taste was love the way we made it

    Love's so strange, playin' hide and seek with hearts and always hurtin'
    We're the fools standin' close enough to touch those burnin' memories
    And if I hold you for the sake of all those times love made us lose our minds
    Could I ever let you go?

    Whoa, no, we made it
    Left each other on the way to another love
    Looks like we made it
    Or I thought so till today
    Until you were there everywhere
    And all I could taste was love the way we made it

    Oh, we made it

    Looks like we made it
    Left each other on the way to another love
    Looks like we made it
    Or I thought so till today
    Until you were there everywhere
    And all I could taste was love the way we made it

    Looks like we made it

    Oh babe we made it Writer/s: RICHARD KERR, WILL JENNINGS
