Earl Thomas Conley - That Was A Close One Lyrics


sponsored links
I loved her because she was there
And I knew all along that it wasn't fair but I didn't care
Then I got the hell out of there
But that was a close one
I keep my freedom intact
Got rid of the hassle and rid of the flack
Yeah I cut me some slack
And I never thought I'd want it back but that was a close one
That was a close one and if I hadn't run
She might have got away with me heart so I played it smart
That was a close one but I kept my cool never let down my guard
That was a close one
The winter of '79 so cold and lonely
I found a good woman she took me inside
And I swear to god I really tried
And that was a close one
Will there ever be a love of my life
When I'm out of my prime and out of my mind
In the nick of time and well the feeling in here is fine
Just the close ones
That was a close one and if I hadn't run
She might have gotten away with me heart my precious heart
That was a close one but I kept my cool never let down my guard
That was a close one
That was a close one I loved her because she was there that was a close one
That was a close one winter of '79 that was close one
That was a close she finally got away with my heart that was a close one
