Clifford T. Ward – Both Of Us lyrics

Love has gone as surely as it came
Leavin' me mistaken
Leavin' you no shame
But that's not all
A child will be forsaken
Thinkin' she was safe
And who will be to blame?

We gotta put away the heartache
You gotta quell your desire
We gotta sacrifice, we must not break
You gotta put out the fire.

Thrown in my dreams, my hopes an' expectations
Believe me, I don't wanna make a fuss
But I can't allow you these new found aspirations
This little girl needs both of us.

You' gotta put away the yearnin'
We gotta hide all the pain
You gotta sacrifice the burnin'
Well let me help you smile again.

Remember sunny days when we would laugh
An' we would play
Throwin' stones in the sea, makin' castles in the sand
An' all those rainy days when we would walk
And stay out late
An' she'd go splashing in the puddles
Got her stockings saturated
Comin' home tired in the dark
Pickin' up sticks
An' kicking at the leaves
Laughin' at those crazy women
She was smilin' at the men.

But love has gone as surely as it came
Leavin' me mistaken
Leavin' you no shame
If that's not enough
A child will be forsaken
Thinkin' she was safe
Now sharin' all the pain.

We gotta put away the heartache
You gotta quell your desire
We gotta sacrifice, we must not break
You gotta put out the fire.

You' gotta put away the yearnin'
We gotta hide all the pain
You gotta sacrifice the burnin'
Well let me help you smile again.
