lyrics

IN A PAST LIFE
I MUST HAVE BEEN ONE OF YOUR SHOES
YOU TIED ME UP AND TOOK THE ROAD
THAT WORE MY SOLE RIGHT THROUGH

YOU WERE ALL I THOUGHT I WANTED
BUT I HAD TO SEE YOU GO
I LOVED YOU MORE THAN ANYTHING
NEVER WANTED YOU TO KNOW

I WISH THAT I HAD KNOWN YOU
SO MANY YEARS AGO
THEN WE COULD HAVE HAD MORE TIME
BEFORE I HAD TO GO

NOW SHE’S THE WOMAN ACROSS THE WATER
AND I’M THE ROLLING STONE
CAN’T BLAME HER FOR BELIEVING
THAT I’M BETTER OFF ALONE

I GUESS I SHOULD BE LONESOME
NOW THAT I’M SLEEPING BY MYSELF
BUT I’D RATHER SLEEP WITHOUT HER
THAN BESIDE SOMEBODY ELSE
SHE SPUN MY WHOLE WORLD AROUND
HAD LOVE RUSHING TO MY HEAD
BUT SOME THINGS ARE BETTER LEFT UNSAID

I NEED A HEALER
TO CLEANSE MY BODY AND MY SOUL
TO LAY THEIR HANDS ON ME
AND LET THAT RHYTHM FLOW

WITH ENERGIES DIVINE
TO SEE FROM THE INSIDE
RELEASE ME OF MY EVIL
AND TO GET HER OFF MY MIND

I COULD SIT HERE AND CRY
ALL THE RAIN THAT’S POURED
SINCE WE PARTED
MY HEART CAN ONLY STRIKE A LONELY CHORD

I’VE CRIED SO MANY TEARS
NOW I’M SO FAR FROM SHORE
I GUESS I FINALLY FOUND
WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR

I GUESS I SHOULD BE LONESOME
NOW THAT I’M SLEEPING BY MYSELF
BUT I’D RATHER SLEEP WITHOUT HER
THAN BESIDE SOMEBODY ELSE
SHE SPUN MY WHOLE WORLD AROUND
HAD LOVE RUSHING TO MY HEAD
BUT SOME THINGS ARE BETTER LEFT UNSAID
