Goin' Thru The Motions

Play

Listen everybody everyday
I go to work and get my pay
Then I go out
Out to have some fun
Find me someone
At the drive-in or the show
Every place we used to go
Oh I just go thru the motions

And these motions I go thru
Only remind me more of you
Why did you go and leave me
Wait and see
You'll be sorry one day
When you hear him say
That he's grown tired of you

Then you'll go thru the motions
The motions I've gone thru
The motions of living a lonely life
Of crying yourself to sleep at night
Just like I cried over you

Life goes on
So they tell me
Well I don't feel
What they tell me
Her memory lingers on
She's not gone
Everyday that I go thru
Lost and lonely without you
I just go thru the motions
