Mike + The Mechanics - Over My Shoulder Lyrics

Looking back over my shoulder
I can see that look in your eye
I never dreamed it could be over
I never wanted to say goodbye

Looking back over my shoulder
With an aching deep in my heart
I wish that we were starting over
Oh instead of drifting so far apart

Everybody told me you were leaving
Funny I should be the last to know
Baby please tell me that I'm dreaming
I just never want to let you go

Looking back over my shoulder
I can see that look in your eye
Turning my heart over and over
I never wanted to say goodbye

I don't mind everybody laughing
But it's enough to make a grown man cry
Cos I can feel you slipping through my fingers
I don't even know the reason why

Every day it's a losing battle
Just to smile and hold my head up high
Could it be that we belong together
Baby won't you give me one more try
One more try

Looking back over my shoulder
I can see that look in your eye
I never dreamed it could be over
I never wanted to say goodbye

Looking back over my shoulder
Oh with an aching feeling inside
Cutting me up, deeper and deeper
Fills me with a sadness that I can't hide

Looking back over my shoulder
I can see that look in your eye
I never dreamed no no it could be over
I never wanted to say goodbye

Looking back over my shoulder
I can see that look in your eye

  22. David Pragmo

    I don't know why the greatest songs are usually downloadable from Youtube while the shittiest songs are the ones protected and no one can download! This goes to show you that the purity in spirit and the emotion such as this song exudes are not for sale. Money always corrupts good music. Thank you for making the video downloadable. The rewards always come back to you.

  23. Helen Berry

    Happy 2020 everyone!🎉

    Toujours à écouter en décembre 2019

    My 90s sound 🎶🎸🎶🎤

  28. Thomas Juel Iversen

    This song will always be kept in my memory as one of the Worlds greatest popsongs of the 90´s. Paul Carracks fantastic voice as frontman in Mike & The Mechanics is very memorable and characteristic. I made a heavy rotation on this particular song as a host on the Danish Radios, Radio Viborg and VLR Vejle through the 90´s and 00´s. Thumbs Up

  29. Niomil Peace

  37. Thomas Lohmann

    I believe more or less every rock song stems from this masterpiece, it was one the most groundbreaking moments in rock’n’roll history that completely revolutionised they way rockstars made music. That singing, the guitar riff, the complex structure of the song, it’s innovative in every single way!


    Good boy Mike , sing it me Boy

  39. wellington mazambani

    That whistling is superb to another level.

  40. frydryk p

    This is the epitomy of a 'chart-breaking' pop song...catchy and perfect from the beginning to the end...
    Carrack's vocals are unsurpassable here.

  41. guillermo rolero

    Took me years to realise this was Mike + The Mechanics, what a reinvention for the '90s!

  77. Sticks L'enfant terrible

    When I was younger I used to confuse the melody of this song with the one of Two Princes by Spin Doctors... Two great classics anyway !

  78. Pedro Moronta

    Every 80s band has a transitional to 90s with great songs, this is one!

  79. Sharky Rider64
