Knockin' On Heaven's Door
Eric Clapton Lyrics


Ma, take this badge off of me
I can't use it any more
It's getting dark, too dark to see
Feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door
Ma, take these guns away from me
I can't shoot them any more
There's a long black cloud following me
Feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

Knock, knock, knockin'
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door

Ma, take this badge off of me
I can't use it any more
It's getting dark, too dark to see
Feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door
Knock, knock, knockin' on heavens door

03 Eric Clapton - Tearing Us Apart Lyrics - From the Album - 1986 - Eric Clapton - August You know the sun is shining It's raining in my heart. I don't know what to do Since we've been apart. Why don't you tell me, babe, What is going on You know I love you darling, I want to be alone. They're tearing us apart, They're breaking up my heart. I knew it from the start: Your friends are tearing us apart. You know I can't go on, Feeling this old way. You know my heart is burning, Burning everyday. You know I love you, baby, no one else will do. Why don't you reconsider, What I want you to They're tearing us apart, They're breaking up my heart. I knew it from the start: Your friends are tearing us apart. Musical Interlude They're tearing us apart, They're breaking up my heart. I knew it from the start: Your friends are tearing us apart. Your friends are tearing us apart, Tearing us apart.

05 Eric Clapton - Walk Away Lyrics - From the Album - 1986 - Eric Clapton - August You leave a trail of tears wherever you go. One of us will hold you, hold you, The other one won't. But I could never share your love or leave it behind. Break his heart, not mine. Do you remember Tender moments we shared How could this true affection vanish into thin air He's not worth the trouble, baby; He's just a waste of your time. Oh, break his heart, not mine. Don't you walk away, You know you're gonna miss me. Don't you walk away, You're gonna miss me, You're gonna miss my love. So don't you walk away, Don't you walk away, walk away. Don't you walk away, walk away. Musical Interlude So I'll be waiting in the backroom, baby, when you kiss him goodbye. Oh, break his heart not mine, But... Don't you walk away, You know you're gonna miss me. Don't you walk away, You're gonna miss me, You're gonna miss my love. Don't you walk away, walk away. Oh don't you walk away. I know you're gonna miss my love. Don't you walk away, walk away. Don't you walk away. You're gonna miss my love. Don't you walk away, walk away.
