Can't Fight This Feeling

Can't Fight This Feeling (REO Speedwagon 1985) 11/5

Throw away the oars forever
drift – close your eyes – you are
grown – I only wish I had strength

When I walk I think run – there
that passport on the nightstand –
throw away the oars forever

Drift – sister I cannot stand it
anymore – this is all that is done
Grown ? I only wish – I had strength

of mind – My fingertips burn
with the memory – what shore did I
throw away the oars forever

Did I ? There is a dream – where
I drown – it plagued me ‘til I was
grown – I only wish I had strength

to go back to that room face water
I am not the man I think I am
Throw away the oars – forever
grown – I wish – I had strength –
