(Porter)
I was going your way and it was plain to see
You were going mine
We were both searching for some way
To leave some old memories behind.

(Pamela)
Somebody broke my heart
AAnd I could tell somebody let you down
We were two lonely people
Two lonely people on the rebound.

(Both)
You cried on my shoulder for a while
Then we turned it around
I told you about her, and I told you about him
Then we found, then we found.

Just like the sun left yesterday
And finally went down
The old love is gone
And a new love was born on the rebound.

--- Instrumental ---

(Porter)
We were brought together
Each looking for an understanding smile
Someone just talk to and sit
And reminisce for a while.

(Pamela)
We picked up the pieces like
Scattered yesterdays on the ground
Yes we found each other
Two lonely people on the rebound.

(Both)
You cried on my shoulder for a while
Then we turned it around
I told you about her, and I told you about him
Then we found, then we found.

Just like the sun left
Yesterday it finally went down
The old love is gone and a new love
Was born on the rebound

The old love is gone and a new love
Was born on the rebound...
