Lyrics

[Verse 1] Sometimes love burns, sometimes it fades away
But in our case it lingers through the day
Just kickin' around
Just kickin' around

[Chorus] And I can't shake you off, oh-oh, oh-oh
The love we have is lost, oh-oh, oh-oh
And I can't shake you
I don't really wanna wait another day
What's the point when the spark has gone away?
And I can't shake you

[Verse 2] I go, you stay, but things stay the same
We're two dreamers too afraid to change
Just stickin' around
Just stickin' around

[Chorus] And I can't shake you off, oh-oh, oh-oh
The love we have is lost, oh-oh, oh-oh
And I can't shake you
I don't really wanna waste another day
What's the point when this love has turned to gray?
And I can't shake you

[Bridge] Cause when I count my blessings
I'm second guessing
You're on my mind and in my clothes
Under my skin

[Chorus] And I can't shake you off, oh-oh, oh-oh
The love we have is lost, oh-oh, oh-oh
And I can't shake you
I don't really wanna wait another day
What's the point when this love has turned to gray?
And I can't shake you off, oh-oh, oh-oh
The love we have is lost, oh-oh, oh-oh
And I can't shake you
I don't really wanna wait another day
What's the point when this love has turned to gray?
And I can't shake you
