Lyrics: The Lace

The Lace (written by Benjamin Orr and Diane Page, ©1985)

 

Just walking through the city, some need to sort things out

I don’t need to know the pity I’m feeling for us now

 

We walked right back together, back when I hardly knew

Why do the strangest things bring back those times with you?

Just when we’re getting closer I’m seeing something new

 

Just soaking up the city, drifting the days away, yeah

Searching through crowds of people, the face that got away

 

We talked good times together, put all my dreams on you

You led me down some path and now I see where to

Turns out my best just wasn’t good enough for you

 

You couldn’t recognize the loss in the world

I want to lose yourself, you couldn’t feel the pull

Everything just ends up so sad, too bad, I gave it what I had

 

Just walking through the city, drifting the days away, yeah

Searching through crowds of people, the lace that got away

 

You’re telling me it’s nothing when I would watch you stare

How could I get to you when you were never there?

 

We walked right back together, back when I hardly knew

Why do the strangest things bring back those times with you?

Just when we’re getting closer I’m seeing something new

 

You couldn’t recognize the loss in the world, so sad
