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

    Looking back over my shoulder
    With an aching deep in my heart
    I wish we were starting over
    Oh, instead of drifting so far apart

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

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

    I don't mind everybody laughing
    But it's enough to make a grown man cry
    'Cause I can feel you slipping through my fingers
    I don't even know the reason why

    Everyday, it's a losing battle
    Just to smile and hold my head up high
    Could it be that we belong together
    Baby, won't you give me one more try, one more try?
    one more try

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

    Looking back over my shoulder (looking back)
    Oh, with an aching (there's an ache feeling inside)
    Cutting me up, oh, deeper and deeper
    Fills me with a sadness that I can't hide
    Looking back, looking back over my shoulder Writer/s: Michael Rutherford, Paul Melvin Carrack

  • E Jones from Carmarthen Carrack's whistling interlude is up there with the mouth organ work that Stevie Wonder did on the Eurythmics There must be an angel playing with my heart, Fantastic.
  • Mitchell from Liverpool, UkThis became the first hit for Mike and the Mechanics to be co-written by their singer Paul Carrack. Although it didn't reach the UK top 10, it seems to still get played on the radio quite a lot.
