LYRICS:

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 Oh, Sherrie, our love Holds on, holds on Oh, Sherrie, our love Holds on, holds on Oh, 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 Oh, Sherrie, our love Holds on, holds on Oh, Sherrie, our love Holds on, holds on Oh, Sherrie [Instrumental Interlude] Oh, Sherrie But I should’ve been gone Long ago, far away And you should’ve been gone Now I know just why you stay Oh, Sherrie, our love Holds on, holds on Oh, Sherrie, our love Holds on, holds on Oh, Sherrie, our love Holds on, holds on Hold on Oh, Sherrie
