I saw the longing in your eyes
But I failed to see the anguish
You so cleverly disguised
Your needs I clearly read
But I never knew your true intentions
They were better left unsaid
I brushed our tears aside
Thought I could wipe away the memory

But couldn't push that far inside
You came so full of regrets
Your body still remembers
What your mind learnt to forget

Love is lost I've found
When trust breaks down
Now we meet those two impostors just the same
Always out of bounds
When love comes round
Don`t even have the strength to share the blame

We ride the train of events
We never make our destination
Never making any sense
You say you leave without regret
But your body will remember
What your mind learns to forget

One love. Two solitudes
There`s no common ground
When trust breaks down
Thought everybody`s love is in the air
Always out of bounds
When love comes down
Too scared to climb the wall of our despair

Love is lust I've found
When trust breaks down
Now we meet those two impostors just the same
Always out of bounds
When love comes round
Don`t even have the strength to share the blame

And the said thing is
There`s no end to this
Your tears are like the rain that beats the rain
And I wake at dawn
To find you gone
Don`t even have strength to call you name

repeat chorus 2
repeat corus 1
