Lyrics by Shoes

Black Vinyl Shoes (1978)
Composed by Jeff Murphy


When I first realized just how it came to be
Your style was smooth and cool, but I just couldn't see
But like a child you never gave yourself away
You feared I'd take my fill and pause, but wouldn't stay

So well planned you played it smart
I know I was cold, I see that now
But did you need to take a running start?

And now you've reached your goal and much to my delight
When I just look at you I know that you were right
Deep in my heart I feel a sadness for the way
You had to try so hard to make me want to stay
