You jark back your hand away from mine and I move my lips away from yours

Then quietly we sit tryin' to forget

Those deep running thoughts that run wild across our minds

You quickly stop the words you start to say and we realize just how close we are

And we both know if we let ourselves go we'll do something we'll be sorry for

Slip away today means sorrow tomorrow

It's love we know but we can't keep but yet we like to borrow

Trying to hold back emotions and desires

It's hard to keep from doing something we'll be sorry for

[ ac.guitar ]

My love hungry heart begs for more of what your lips hold in store

But our conscience just won't let us at least tonight it kept us

From jumpin' off the deep end and going too far

But one of these night you and I will be ruled by the passion of our hearts

And we both know if we let ourselves go and do something that we'll be sorry for

Slip away today means...

It's hard to keep from doing something we'll be sorry for
