ATLANTA RHYTHM SECTION
"Conversation"
(Buddy Buie / J.R. Cobb)

Conversation, getting so hard to make
I try to communicate but I can't get through
We are strangers but I remember when
You used to be my friend and my lover too

And I don't really know how it happened
And I don't really know what to say
I just wonder how we ever got this way

Conversation that's what it's all about
Why can't we talk it out
And say what's on our minds?
Situation, keep getting in the way
So much we need to say
But we're running out of time

And I don't really know how it happened
I have tried but I don't understand
How we ever let it get so out of hand

It's just like a dream you can't remember
Even though you always wish you could
When it's gone, it's gone forever
When it's gone, it's gone for good

Conversation, things that we've done and said
Keep running though my head, like a sad echo
Desperation's, gettin' the best of me
'Cause I can't make you see and I can't let go, no

And I don't really know how it happened
And I don't really know what to say
But I can't bring myself to throw it all away
