Right through my fingers
Lyrics
Right through my fingers (2011)
© 2006 Bruce Mills (ASCAP)

I got no sympathy if you're feeling lonely
I tried to love you a long time ago
I gave you my body, heart and my tomorrow
But you said no, you said no

Tables turning now and you're sad and lonely
And you're calling my number late at night
Leaving messages asking me to forgive you
But that ain't right, no that ain't right

Chorus
But if you're all alone playing solitaire
I don't care - no I don't care
Because when I tried to love you - you said no -
You turned around, baby, and you walked out that door

You even called and said you were sorry
Baby, I am feeling sorry too
But apologies are cheap just like those promises
The ones you made to me but could not keep

Winter is a cold, cold season
And I saw your foot prints in the snow
I guess you came while I was sleeping
I'll never know, I'll never know

Chorus
But if you're all alone playing solitaire
I don't care - I really don't care
Because when I tried to love you - you said no
You turned around, baby, and you walked out that door

I can see you looking back over your shoulder
Distance growing with every step you take
It's getting colder; you're a a little older
Right through my fingers I see you slipping away
Right through my fingers
Right through my fingers
Right through my fingers
Your love just slipped away
Your love just slopped away
