Sadness slips into the room
On silent steps of sorrow
Stealing sleep and all my dreams
Where will we be tomorrow?

Lying with you, crying with you, drifting
Talking 'til dawn, yet we go on, drifting
Don't understand where we began just drifting apart
Drifting apart, feeling alone, drifting away

We can't seem to work it out
Drifting from day to day
What is it all about? Drifting away
Drifting away, drifting away

Losing the feeling
And now the music of the song is almost gone
That we used to play
From sweet surrender to drifting away, drifting

Two lovers lost, two rivers crossed, drifting
Two bridges burned, no lessons learned, drifting
Lonely together, hurting each other
Still we can't say that it's over

Can't we bring back yesterday
Will we be forever
Forever drifting away?
Drifting, drifting away
