  • Oh

    There was a time when
    Broken hearts and broken dreams
    Were over
    There was a place where
    All you could do was
    Wish on a four-leaf clover

    But now is a new time
    There is a new place
    Where dreams just can't come true
    It started the day when I left you (oh)

    I could never love again the way that I loved you (oh)
    I could never cry again like I did when I left you
    And when we said goodbye
    Oh, the look in your eyes
    Just left me beside myself without your heart (without your heart)
    I could never love again now that we're apart

    When I was sorry
    It was too late to turn around (turn around)
    And tell you so
    There was no reason
    There was no reason
    Just a foolish beat of my heart

    I could never love again the way that I loved you (oh)
    I could never cry again like I did when I left you
    And when we said goodbye
    Oh, the look in your eyes
    Just left me beside myself without your heart (without your heart)
    I could never love again now that we're apart

    Oh, can't you see I'm not fooling nobody?
    Don't you see the tears are falling down my face?
    Since you went away
    Break my heart, you slipped away
    Didn't know I was wrong
    Never meant to hurt you now you're gone

    Oh oh oh
    Do, do, do, do, do, do
    Oh oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh

    I could never love again
    Now that we're apart
    Now that we're apart, oh
    I could never love again
    Now that we're apart Writer/s: DEBBIE GIBSON
