Come On Out And Tell Me (Like We Always Said We Would)

Play

I hate to wake you from your sleep
But there's a promise made
It's time to keep
So may I coin an old cliché
We can't go on
Go on living this way

Won't you come on out and tell me
Like we always said we would
If our love
Ever stopped feeling good
'Cause hanging on to a love that's gone
Will only leave us alone
And love is the part that keeps us young

Tonight I lit a cigarette
I couldn't sleep
And I saw on your face
The first smile you smiled in weeks
Holding your pillow tight
Squeezing with all your might
The way you once held on to me

Won't you come on out and tell me
Like we always said we would
If our love
Ever stopped feeling good
'Cause hanging on to a love that's gone
Will only leave us alone
And love is the part that keeps us young

Won't you come on out and tell me
Like we always said we would
If our love
Ever stopped feeling good
'Cause hanging on to a love that's gone
Will only leave us ...
