Separate Lives

Written by Eric Woolfson and Alan Parsons

It's been a long road

We've walked the last mile

We reach the same conclusion

And we stop for a while


Together we know

The way we must go

We're leaving an illusion

That's for us to share

Only for us to share


We live our separate lives

And go our different ways

Cause we don't see eye to eye

And we can't stand face to face


We live our separate lives

While counting all the days

Till the two of us arrive

In another time and place


We share the same thoughts

We read the same lines

We meet on sad occasions

And in happier times


A spoken goodbye

And both of us try

To walk away in silence

That's for us to share,

Only for us to share


We live our separate lives

And go our different ways

Cause we don't see eye to eye

And we can't stand face to face


We live our separate lives

While counting all the days

Till the two of us arrive

In another time and place


And always goodbye

But heaven knows why

I can't erase the memory

That's for us to share

Only for us to share

Only for us to share


We live our separate lives

And go our different ways

Cause we don't see eye to eye

And we can't stand face to face


We live our separate lives

While counting all the days

Till the two of us arrive

In another time and place
