Drifting Away

This song is by Roy Orbison and appears on the album Rare Orbison (1989) and on the compilation album The Legendary Roy Orbison (1990).

Sadness slips into the room
On silent steps of sorrow
Stealing sleep and all my dreams
Where will we be tomorrow?

Lying with you, crying with you, drifting
Talking till dawn yet we go on, drifting
Don't understand where we began just drifting apart
Drifting apart feeling alone drifting away

We can't seem to work it out
Drifting from day to day
Wasn't it all about, drifting away
Drifting away, drifting away

Losing the feeling
And now the music of the song is almost gone
That we used to play
From sweet surrender from drifting away, drifting

Two lovers lost two rivers crossed, drifting
Two bridges burned, no lesson learned, drifting
Lonely together, hurting each other
Still we can't say that it's over
Can we bring back yesterday?
Will we be forever, forever drifting away
Drifting, drifting away
