You should've been gone
Knowing how I made you feel
And I should've been gone
After all your words of steel
Oh I must've been a dreamer
And I must've been someone else
And we should've been over

CHORUS:
Oh Sherrie, our love
Holds on, holds on
Oh Sherrie, our love
Holds on, holds on

But I want to let go
You'll go on hurtin' me
You'd be better off alone
If I'm not who you thought I'd be

But you know that there's a fever
Oh that you'll never find nowhere else
Can't you feel it burnin' on and on

CHORUS

But I should've been gone
Long ago, far away
And you should've been gone
Now I know just why you stay

CHORUS

Oh Sherrie, our love
Holds on, holds on

    General CommentThis isn't by Journey, it's by the lead singer Steve Perry. This was the big song off his album. Journey rocks!

    General CommentI enjoy this song by Steve Perry, and a lot of his others on his cd "street talk" I think he will do just fine solo, but I also think that Journey isn't "journey" without Steve Pery!

    General CommentChrist, if i have to read one more person say how Journey isn't the same without Steve Perry, I'm going to beat them with that Wheel in the Sky.
    Journey was together forever, 20+ years or whatever. And Steve Perry left years ago, and they haven't been good since the 80s, and their last 4 or 5 albums sucked anyway.
    Journey isn't the same without Steve Perry
    no shit, that's because they have a NEW SINGER in the band!
    Get over it...
