Barry Manilow – The Old Songs lyrics

Candles burning
Glasses are chilled and soon
Shell be by
Hope and pray
Shell say that she's willing to give us

Another try
And if all those plans I've made
Don't melt the ladys heart
Ill put on the old 45s

And maybe the old songs
Will bring back the old times
Maybe the old lines will sound new
Maybe shell lay her head on my shoulder
Maybe old feelings will come through
Maybe well start to cry
And wonder why
We ever walked away
Maybe the old songs
Will bring back the old times
And make her want to stay

Its been too long since I've
Seen her face light up
When I come home
Its been too many
Hours I've wasted staring
At the phone
Sweet old songs I'm counting on you
To bring her back to me
I'm tired of listening alone
