Old Songs Lyrics

by Barry Manilow

Candles burnin', glasses are chilled
And soon she'll be by
Hope and pray she'll say
That she's willin' to give us another try

And if all those plans I've made
Don't melt the lady's heart
I'll put on the old 45's

And maybe the old songs will bring back the old times
Maybe the old lines will sound new
Maybe she'll lay her head on my shoulder
Maybe old feelings will come through

Maybe we'll start to cry and wonder why
We ever walked away
Maybe the old songs will bring back the old times
And make her want to stay

It's been too long since I've
Seen her face light up when I come home
It's been too many hours
I've wasted starin' at the phone

Sweet old songs
I'm countin' on you
To bring her back to me
I'm tired of listenin' alone

Maybe the old songs will bring back the old times
Maybe the old lines will sound new
Maybe she'll lay her head on my shoulder
Maybe old feelings will come through

Or maybe we'll start to cry and wonder why
We ever walked away
Maybe the old songs will bring back the old times
And make her want to stay, want to stay

Maybe we'll start to cry and wonder why
We ever walked away
Maybe the old songs will bring back the old times
And make her want to stay

Old songs, bring back the old times
