The Real Thing (Stayed Just Out Of Our Reach)
Recorded by Red Steagall
Written by Glenn Sutton and Red Steagall

C G7
This time we got close girl
And at times I thought almost girl
We were awfully close to what true love should be

Then the going got to rough girl

And when neither gave enough girl
C G7
The real thing stayed just out of our reach

C G7
Too bad we'll never know girl
The feeling when love grows closer
And we'll never see the end of all our dreams

Too much has been said girl

That neither can forget girl
So the real things just stay out of our reach

The real thing is loving forever
Forgiving when things go wrong
We climb loves ladder right up to the top
But we could not hold on

C G7
So our love failed the test girl
I wish you all the best girl
May the world lay love and roses at your feet

We learned from our mistakes girl

You gotta give as well as take girl
For the real thing stays just out of reach
