Old Shoes Lyrics

I? m singin? this song, 'cause it? s time it was sung
I? ve been puttin? it off for a while
'Cause it? s harder by now, and the truth is so clear
That I? m cryin? when I? m seein? you smile

So goodbye, so long, the road calls me, dear
And your tears cannot bind me anymore
And farewell to the girl with the sun in her eyes
Can I kiss you, and then I? ll be gone

And every time that I tried to tell you that we? d
Lost the magic we had at the start
I would weep in my heart when I looked in your eyes
And I? d search once again for the spark

So goodbye, so long, the road calls me, dear
And your tears cannot bind me anymore
And farewell to the girl with the sun in her eyes
Can I kiss you, and then I? ll be gone

For you know, that there? s somethin? callin? me, dear
And by morning I? m sure to be gone
For I? m older than you, and you know oh so well
That our time for the love was this song

So goodbye, so long, the road calls me, dear
And your tears cannot bind me anymore
And farewell to the girl with the sun in her eyes
Can I kiss you, and then I? ll be gone

Now I can see by your eyes, that it? s time for to go
So I? ll leave you cryin? in the rain
Though I held in my hand, the key to all joy
Honey, my heart was not born to be tamed

And goodbye, so long, the road calls me, dear
And your tears cannot bind me anymore
And farewell to the girl with the sun in her eyes
Can I kiss you, and then I? ll be gone
Can I kiss you, and then I? ll be gone
