"Oil and Water" as written by and Thomas Salter Lights Valerie Poxleitner....
Gone when you get stuck
Sleepin' when you wake up
Lover on the other coast

Off to the races
Headed other places
Chasing a familiar ghost

No one said it would be this hard
How could I know
Why do we always get so far
Before we let go

And we separate
Nothing is the same forever
See you drive away
Wish I could make you stay
Oh, oil and water
Oh, oil and water

Cycles, seasons, watching you leave and
Thinkin' I could change the rules
Rocks on the ocean, wheels in motion
Wishin' is a game of fools

No one said it would be this hard
How could I know
Why do we always get so far
Before we let go

And we separate
Nothing is the same forever
See you drive away
Wish I could make you stay
Oh, oil and water
Oh, oil and water

Kickin', screamin'
Softly speaking
Near are parting ways
We'll go under
Oil and water
Always separate

Kickin', screamin'
Softly speaking
Near are parting ways
We'll go under
Oil and water
Always separate

And we separate
Nothing is the same forever
See you drive away
Wish I could make you stay
Oh, oil and water
Oh, oil and water
Oh, oil and water
Oh, oil and water
