Lyrics

Every hour every day
Since you've gone far away
It's a love canopy of dreams
And broken arrows
And broken arrows

Baby don't you know
No
Get in the car
Just before we go
We go
We go

Every hour every day
Love it seems far away
It's the last chance to be with you
And hear your heartache
And hear your heartache

But baby don't you know
No
Get in the car
Just before we go
We go
We go

And after all that we couldn't say
Oh no
I turned to you and said "anyway"
Oh no
He had no right no
We stood and fought
I need love
I need love

Baby don't you know
No
Get in the car
Just before we go
We go
We go

Every hour every day
Every hour every day
