Roy Orbison – Drifting Away lyrics

Sadness slips in to the room
On silent steps of sorrow
Stealing sleep and all my dreams
Where will we be tomorrow
Lying with you
Crying with you
Talking till dawn
Yet we go on
Don't understand where we begin
Just drifting apart
Drifting apart
Feeling alone
Drifting away

We can't seem to work it out
Drifting from day to day
What is it all about
Drifting away
Drifting away
Drifting away
Losing the feeling
And now the music of this song is almost done
And we used to play
From sweet surrender
To drifting away

Two lovers lost
Two rivers crossed
Two bridges burned
No lessons learned

Lonely together
Hurting each other
Still we can't say that it is over
Can't we bring back yesterday

Will we will be forever
Forever drifting away
Drifting away
