All the Way - Julie Matthews
From the album ‘Lies and Alibi’s’ Pat Shaw and Julie Matthews

 

It was such a precious thing the way you held me in the night
Such a fatal sting the way you told me goodbye
And it was like China so fragile and so fine this love of mine

And it was like lightening a bolt from the blue
Left me in ashes still burning for you
And it was like a tango the band played out of time this love of mine

Oh! There’s no mercy for the foolish who give it all away
Oh! Show some mercy for the foolish who dare to take you all the way

It was like a double take it was here now it’s gone
Put the thing together then the seams come undone
I’m waking up in January my hearts still in July with this love of mine

Oh! There’s no mercy for the foolish who give it all away
Oh! Show some mercy for the foolish who dare to take you all the way

Oh! You say this is the limit
But you know you’ll do the same next time
There’s no mercy for the foolish who give it all away
Oh! Show some mercy for the foolish who dare to take you all the way
