About We're Not Makin' Love Anymore

"We're Not Makin' Love Anymore" is a song recorded by American singer Barbra Streisand for her fourth greatest hits album, A Collection: Greatest Hits...and More (1989). It was released on September 14, 1989 by Columbia Records on 7", 12", cassette, and CD. It was written by Michael Bolton and Diane Warren and produced by Narada Michael Walden. Bolton's inspiration for the song was derived from his divorce; he and Warren debated what singer would be able to sing their work well and ultimately decided that Streisand would be the right fit. The song is a ballad that is similar in sound to Streisand's "Comin' In and Out of Your Life" (1981). Feedback for the song was mixed, with music critics questioning its inclusion on A Collection: Greatest Hits...and More and calling it unmemorable. Commercially, it entered the record charts in four countries, including Canada, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States. On the Adult Contemporary chart in the lattermost country, it became a top ten hit while in the Netherlands, it was her lowest-performing single in her entire career. An accompanying music video for the song was directed by Jim Shea and premiered on various television platforms in order to promote it. Bolton and Patti LaBelle covered it in 1991 for the former's seventh studio album, Time, Love & Tenderness, and LaBelle's studio album Burnin'.

Here we are, just going through the motions one more time
You look into my eyes but you don't see me
And here I am, feeling like a stranger in your arms
I touch you, I hold you but lately I don't know you

Something is wrong but we go on from day to day
And we just pretend it all away
We act like nothing's changed
But in our hearts we know, it's not the same, oh, no

'Cause we're not makin' love anymore
Baby, we're not makin' love like before
We may hold each other tight
Say that everything's alright
But we're not makin' love

Remember when you couldn't wait to run into my arms
When the love inside my heart was all you needed
Remember when you made me wish the night would never end
The fire, the thunder, we lived to love each other

If ever two hearts were one, then it was yours and mine
But that was another place in time
Now all we have to show
Are memories of a dream we used to know

'Cause we're not makin' love anymore
Baby, we're not makin' love like before
We may hold each other tight
Say that everything's alright
But we're not makin' love

When did we lose our way? We had it all
Don't know how it all just slipped away
But oh, can we get it back again?
Is it too late? Can we try just one time?

'Cause darling, we're not makin' love anymore
Baby, we're not makin' love like before
We may hold each other tight
Say that everything's alright

We're not makin' love anymore
Baby, we're not makin' love like before
Can we find a way to try?
Find the magic one more time
'Cause we're not makin' love
