Patti Austin – All Behind Us Now lyrics


[Verse 1]
Hey, I'm so sorry
That it didn't work the way
That we'd always planned
Hey, I'm so sorry
That you went away
And somehow didn't understand

[Pre-Chorus 1]
We pretended for so many years
But now it's time wash away my tears

'Cause and it's all behind us now
'Cause we've learned to live somehow without each other
And it's easy to see
It ain't never gonna be the same again

And it's all behind us now
'Cause we found a way to live without each other
And in time we'll have to see
If it's ever gonna be that way again

[Verse 2]
Hey, I'm so sorry
That I couldn't find the words that might have made you stay
And hey, it's so funny
How we both can say the same thing in a different way

[Pre-Chorus 2]...
We pretended for so many years,
But now it's over baby
And so are my tears

(Repeat chorus)

I was holdin' out for far too long
But now I finally found where I belong

(Repeat chorus to fade)..

    I have just seen this on YouTube while trying to scan for love songs. And now I have started to enjoy this. It reminds me of my ex boyfriend way back then. After I got married I still couldn't move on and I still couldn't forget him. And I think he feels the same way also. And now I have heard this song. I hope someday I may able to forget our memories. It makes cry or even guilty knowing my status. Everything is all behind us now:(
