Lyrics

Gotta Get a Message
(Barry Gibb, additional lyrics Paul Vernet)
 
The preacher turned to me and he smiled He said "Come and walk with me, come and walk one more mile.” “Now for once in your in life, you’re alone.”
I told him,  "I'm in no hurry, but if I broke her heart then won't you tell her I'm sorry?"
"I don’t know where we went wrong, or even whose side I’m on."
 
Ah, but he just shook his head and smiled
 
I've just gotta get a message to you Hold on, hold on One more hour and my life will be through Hold on
 
When I think of the hurt
That we put each other through
The pain couldn’t be worse
But that’s how you know you’re alive
 
And I know that she set me up
Cause I could smell her perfume
It was all over the blindfold they used
That’s how I knew
And it wasn’t cheap…
 
I've just gotta get a message to you
Hold on, hold on
 
One more hour and my life will be through Hold on, hold on
 
I dreamed that I was sleeping
I dreamed that I was sleeping
I dreamed that I was sleeping
When she left me for dead
