Lyrics

Sun coming up, rise and shine
Get the kids off to school, get to work by nine
Go all day, not a minute to spare
Fall into bed, too tired to care
Oh, those days of passion
Slip away like last year’s fashion
Oh, Baby, I’m askin’, let’s take a little time
For you and I

Stuck in the middle of a broke-down love affair
Need a little peace, can’t find it anywhere
Ain’t it time we go on back, start all over again
We’ve got each other, we’ve got tonight
Let’s stop and make it right
Baby, tell me you still care
Let’s pick up the pieces
Of this broke-down love affair

We can go to the mountains and the evergreens
Walk by the shore in an ocean breeze
All we need is a getaway car
A change of clothes, a credit card
It’s been too long we’ve been missing
Candlelight, skinny-dipping
Oh, Baby let’s stop wishing
And make it come true
For me and you

Stuck in the middle of a broke-down love affair
Need a little peace, can’t find it anywhere
Ain’t it time we go on back, start all over again
We’ve got each other, we’ve got tonight
Let’s stop and make it right
Baby, tell me you still care
Let’s pick up the pieces
Of this broke-down love affair

Oh, those days of passion
Slip away like last year’s fashion
Oh, Baby, I’m askin’, let’s take a little time
For you and I, we’ve been

Stuck in the middle of a broke-down love affair
Need a little peace, can’t find it anywhere
Ain’t it time we go on back, start all over again
We’ve got each other, we’ve got tonight
Let’s stop and make it right
Baby, tell me you still care
Let’s pick up the pieces
Of this broke-down love affair
