Same Old Story

 

While they dance

How she holds him

Pulls him close

And loves him so

            While he dreams of another

            And counts the days until he lets her go

 

 

                                    Same old story

                                    Everybody knows

                                    One heart holdin' on

                                    And one letting go

 

 

While they ride

Lord, he tells her

How they two

Will settle down

            But she only hears the highway

            And a voice in some other town

 

                                                And the harder

                                                He holds her

                                                The more she slips away

 

 

                                    Same old story

                                    Everybody knows

                                    One heart holding on

                                    And one letting go
