ONE WAY STREET

Official studio version


Well if the sun should fall from the sky tomorrow
If the rain brings a tear to your eye I would share your sorrow
If you must go, then take your leave
Our love was strong, our love was sweet
But we were walking on the wild side, running down a one way street

In the night, I see only the fire in your eyes
The morning light brings the shadows of your lies
And so the change has come today
And for our wrongs well we must pay
We were walking on the wild side, running down a one way street

[Sax solo]

Oh my darling I must, I must confess
This can't be love, no I am just a man possessed
And so the tide has turned to day
We can turn and walk away
'Cause we were walking on the wild side, running down a one way street
Yes we are
Girl, we're walking on the wild side, running down a one way street

[Sax solo]

Whoa-hoo
