Lyrics:

John Sloman album version

 

Feelings, empty feelings

Prayin’, hopin’, needin’

Just when I wanted to hold you

You’re leavin’, you’re leavin’

Leavin’, you’re leavin’

 

I remember those magic nights

Those nights when it all seemed right

But I knew that by mornin’ you’d be gone

And though you tell me that it’s not for long

It ain’t easy here holdin’ on

You gotta tell me where I stand

 

‘Cause either you don’t give a damn

Or you don’t even care to pretend

Or you won’t spare a thought

Though you know it must come to an end

 

Feelings, empty feelings

Prayin’, hopin’, needin’

Just when I wanted to hold you

You’re leavin’, you’re leavin’

Leavin’, you’re leavin’

 

You’d better know that I’ve made up my mind

I gotta high of a different kind

And it’s gonna take me where I wanna be

Sure I’ll miss ya but I gotta choose

You can’t believe that I came here to lose

And you ain’t a winner, that’s easy to see

 

So I’ll see you around or I’ll write

And I’ll send you some love

‘Cause where I wanna go

There ain’t nothing to do but move

 

Feelings, empty feelings

Prayin’, hopin’, needin’

Just when I wanted to hold you

You’re leavin’, you’re leavin’

Leavin’, you’re leavin’

 

Feelings, empty feelings

Prayin’, hopin’, needin’

Just when I wanted to hold you

You’re leavin’, you’re leavin’

Leavin’, you’re leavin’

 

Feelings, empty feelings

Prayin’, hopin’, needin’

Just when I wanted to hold you

You’re leavin’, you’re leavin’

Leavin’, you’re leavin’

 

 

John Sloman single version

 

Feelings, empty feelings

Prayin’, hopin’, needin’

Just when I wanted to hold you

You’re leavin’, you’re leavin’

Leavin’, you’re leavin’

 

I remember those magic nights

Those nights when it all seemed right

But I knew that by mornin’ you’d be gone

And though you tell me that it’s not for long

It ain’t easy here holdin’ on

You gotta tell me where I stand

 

‘Cause either you don’t give a damn

Or you don’t even care to pretend

Or you won’t spare a thought

Though you know it must come to an end

 

Feelings, empty feelings

Prayin’, hopin’, needin’

Just when I wanted to hold you

You’re leavin’, you’re leavin’

Leavin’, you’re leavin’

 

Feelings, empty feelings

Prayin’, hopin’, needin’

Just when I wanted to hold you

You’re leavin’, you’re leavin’

Leavin’, you’re leavin’

 

Feelings, empty feelings

Prayin’, hopin’, needin’

Just when I wanted to hold you

You’re leavin’, you’re leavin’

Leavin’, you’re leavin’

 

Feelings, empty feelings

Prayin’, hopin’, needin’

Just when I wanted to hold you

You’re leavin’, you’re leavin’

Leavin’, you’re leavin’

 

 

John Lawton version

 

Feelings, empty feelings

Prayin’, hopin’, needin’

Just when I wanted to hold you

You’re leavin’, you’re leavin’

Leavin’, leavin’

 

When we meet

Every night in the bar

If I’m feelin’ alright

We’ll get high in your car

Then come morning

And you will be gone

You’re my five-minute friend

And you’ve gotta move on

 

And you don’t stop me

Thinkin’ my feelings

And I’m hidin’ the hurtin’ inside

And I know how you

Set my heart reelin’

As I see it and swallow my pride

 

Well, either you don’t give a damn

Or you don’t even care to pretend

Or you won’t spare a thought

Though you know

It must come to an end

 

And I’ve got those feelings

Empty feelings

Prayin’, hopin’, needin’

Just when I wanted to hold you

You’re leavin’, you’re leavin’

Leavin’, leavin’

 

Feelings, empty feelings

Prayin’, hopin’, needin’

Just when I wanted to hold you

You’re leavin’, you’re leavin’

Leavin’, leavin’
