Lyrics

When Love Goes Away

Don't touch my hand, don't watch me cry
Don't brush the tears away from my eye
Don't say a word, there's nothing to say
When love goes away, love goes away

Such a surprise, nobody knew
Least of all me, no one but you
Isn't it sad, I hear our friends say
When love goes away, love goes away

So when does love start?
Does it come in the night?
When passions are burning and you're holding me tight
Is it all real? Is it all right?
And why does it hurt like the turn of a knife.

Maybe it's you, maybe it's me.
Maybe love's not what I thought it would be
Maybe my dreams just led me astray
And love went away, love went away
(Solo)

Is love all consuming? Is it really so much
Thunder and lightening or a soft velvet touch
Is it the truth or is it a lie?
And why do we think that without it we'll die?

Now there are two who tried to be one
Casting two shadows there backs to the sun
No reason to be here, no reason to stay
When love goes away, love goes away.

No reason to be here, no reason to stay.
When love goes away, love goes away.
