From the recording The Other Side

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
