Lyrics

Verse:

Did I tell you that I loved you before you turned that key?

A few miles down the road, the thought it haunted me

Just one more chance to hold you, to tell you you’re my life

What am I gonna do now that I can’t be your wife?

 

The road was dark, the turn was sharp, The car it came so fast

I called the man a liar when he told me you had crashed

I know someday I’ll feel again something that’s not pain

The tears they just keep falling like Bombay in the rain

 

CHORUS:

Why’d you take that ride and leave us all behind

If love was all I needed to turn the hands of time

We could both grow old, and watch our family grow

Oh why’d you take that ride, now you’re on the other side

 

Verse:

From the days of Lascaux ‘til eternity my friend

Our souls are walking hand in hand, Our love will never end

Every word I write I’ll wonder did it come from me or you

Your poetry, your beauty still comes shining through

 

CHORUS:

Why’d you take that ride and leave us all behind

If love was all I needed to turn the hands of time

We could both grow old, and watch our family grow

Oh why’d you take that ride, now you’re on the other side

 

Verse:

I miss your touch, your lips, your hair

The way you said good night

You filled my life with laughter, love, hope and light

 

CHORUS:

Why’d you take that ride and leave us all behind

If love was all I needed I could turn the hands of time

We could both grow old, and watch our family grow

Oh why’d you take that ride, why’d you take that ride?

Why’d you take that ride and leave us all behind?

If love was all I needed I could turn the hands of time

We could both grow old, and watch our family grow

Oh why’d you take that ride, why’d you take that ride?

The next time I see you, I’ll be on the other side
