Tear Ourselves Away ©2016 Karen Potje

Make a couple more of your sweet promises
I can pay you back with my love and kisses
Tell me one more time just what heaven this is
Before we have to tear ourselves away

I remember then how I longed to hold you
That was way back when I still hadn’t told you
Now I’m in your arms and the world’s too cold
We can hardly stand to tear ourselves away

Tear ourselves away, yeah, yeah, back into real world
Tear ourselves away, yeah, yeah, feeling what we feel
Isn’t it a shame? Yeah, yeah. How we hate to go
Tear ourselves away, yeah, yeah. Knowing what we know

All my other loves were just hits and misses
Never knew the pull of magnetic kisses
Never knew the powerful force true bliss is
Before we had to tear ourselves away

Tear ourselves away, yeah, yeah, back into real world
Tear ourselves away, yeah, yeah, feeling what we feel
Isn’t it a shame? Yeah, yeah. How we hate to go
Tear ourselves away, yeah, yeah, knowing what we know

All my other old loves were hits and misses
Shooting blindly in the dark
Then I got in range of your smile and this is it
Love has finely made its mark

Make a couple more of your sweet promises
I can pay you back with my love and kisses
Tell me one more time just what heaven this is
Before we have to tear ourselves away

Tear ourselves away, yeah, yeah, back into real world
Tear ourselves away, yeah, yeah, feeling what we feel
Isn’t it a shame? Yeah, yeah. How we hate to go.
Before we have to tear ourselves away
Before we have to tear ourselves away
Before we have to tear ourselves away
