You should've been gone
Knowing how I made you feel
And I should've been gone
After all your words of steel
Oh I must have been a dreamer
(Must have been a dreamer I know)
And I must've been someone else
(Someone else)
And we should've been over
(Over now)

Oh Sherrie
Our love holds on
Holds on
Oh Sherrie
Our love holds on
Holds on

But I want to let go
You'll go on hurtin' me
You'd be better off alone
If I'm not who you'd thought I'd be

But you know that there's a fever
(There's a fever I know)
That you'll never find nowhere else
(Nowhere, nowhere else)
Can't you feel it burnin' on and on

Oh Sherrie
Our love holds on
Holds on
Oh Sherrie
Our love holds on

(Guitar solo)

Oh Sherrie

But I should've been gone
Long ago and far away
And you should've been gone
Now I know just why you stay

Oh Sherrie
Our love holds on
Holds on
Oh Sherrie
Our love holds on
Holds on
Oh Sherrie
Our love holds on
Holds on

Hold on, ooh Sherrie
