Lyrics

An ocean now divides us like the splintered table where we sit
Nervously I cast my eyes down and spin your mothers ring
Do I tell you what I’m feeling, break the silent stare we hold?
I don’t want to hurt anybody but I’ve got to be true
Got to be honest with you

Tough talking true
Like walking cross desert sands with nothing to drink
Tough talking true
Like walking on a narrow rope in sky scraper heels

Once upon a time everything was so right
Our dreams were one and the same to make a sunshine life
I thought that love would be enough to take us from these city streets
But shadows fell and we lost our way and I couldn’t get through
To get the love to you

Tough talking true
Like walking cross desert sands with nothing to drink
Tough talking true
Like walking on a narrow rope in sky scraper heels

You know I’d rather be making love to you
Than breaking up but this is what I’ve got to do
