Lyrics: Shayla

Shayla by Elliot Easton (written by Elliot Easton and Jules Shear, ©1984)

 

Shayla, I don’t understand you

Seems it’s harder now than when we met

You were grabbing on his wrist and he was proud and

 

Shayla, you took some getting used to

But you looked so in love and he’s my friend

That meant you were my friend, too

 

I never knew what makes you so illogical, what motivates you to go

and trade him for a silhouette of a stranger that you don’t know

 

Shayla you say it could have been us

and I say you’re foolish but I know that the signals were too strong

and you are my Shayla

 

What makes you so illogical? What motivates you to go

and trade him for a silhouette of a stranger that you don’t know?

 

Shayla, I don’t understand you

Seems it’s harder now than when we met

Shayla… oh Shayla
