Cher – Borrowed Time lyrics

I turn my back on him
Now it's you that makes me smile
But in your arms, I'm restless
Like I'm leaving in awhile
I let the match and burned my bridges
You were mine
Now I got this feeling
You'll be the next in line

Living on the love of another man's woman
That's loving on borrowed time
Like to make a song last forever
But the next dance won't be mine
Living on the love of another man's woman
That's loving on borrowed time

My old love's broken pieces
And I ain't met the new
You're here in the middle
Hanging on until I do
Cause I'm a train that stops
At every station down the line
You're a fool so desperate
That you'll ride on borrowed time

[Chorus x3]
