Oil and Water

Your eyes used to shine




you never did see
But now they’re cold and hard



but now we’re separated
You used to be mine




(pause)
But now your heart is barred



we try but we can’t stay together
I used to love your voice



we’re like oil and water
Calling to say goodnight
But now all we do is fight
and I don’t see the light

c. we used to belong together
like seashells in the sand
on the beach were we used to walk
hand in hand
perfect sync, two peas in a pod
but now we don’t mix
like oil and water

I used to listen to you
You used to listen to me
But now we can’t agree
And you get angry
How did this battle begin
When did you stop loving me
When did I stop loving you

Nothing is going right
And maybe I’m starting to see the light

Chorus
We tried so hard to make it right!
Sometimes things become clear in the dark
Of the night
No matter how we try to make it work
We separate again!

chorus
(softer:) we used to belong together
Seashells in the sand
You were my treasure
Thought we belonged together
(normal) we used to belong together
Seashells in the sand
The beach where we used to walk
Hand in hand
Perfect harmony
Two people more alike
you never did see
but now we’re separated
(pause)
we try but we can’t stay together
we’re like oil and water
