Almost Love

Saturday, 13 January 2018 08:25

Almost Love
Seems to me as if that’s all we’re coming to
And it feels good after all that I’ve been through.
Killing time
I’ve been down to my last dime
I’ve been scared that all the pain’s gonna show, but now I know
That I was hurting the most ‘cause I’ve never been close to

Almost Love
And it feels like it’s the closest I’ve been yet.
And it’s stronger now the closer that I get.
Coming Home
I’ve been running far too long
Now it looks like if I hang on to you, I’ll make it through
And if you Hang onto me, I’ll bet this could be

Almost Love
Seems to me as if that’s all we’re coming to
And it feels good after all that I’ve been through.
Killing time
I’ve been down to my last dime
I’ve been scared that all the pain’s gonna show, but now I know
That I was hurting the most ‘cause I’ve never been close to
Almost Love
Kind of feels like it’s Almost Love

Almost Love – Music by John Barry, Lyrics by Dean Pitchford
