Only When You Leave

by Spandau Ballet

Layin' in the after glow 
I only wanna learn what you know 
But now you're leavin' 
How many hearts must you break 
And how many calls must I make 
 
But now you're leavin' 
In this world all that I choose has come unbearable 
But love is in your touch 
Ooh, it's killing me so much 
 
Ooh, only when you leave
I'll need to love you
And when the action has all gone
I'm just a little fool enough to need you
A fool enough too long
Only when you leave, you'll leave in danger
Ooh, I'll make sure that you pay
So give a little passion to a stranger
And take this soul away

I only wanna make things last
So how could this have gone so fast
And now you're leavin'
How many times must I learn
It's only when you've gone that I burn 

And now you're leavin'
In the end, all that is left has come unbearable
It's hard to change your mind
So leave it all behind

Ooh, only when you leave
I'll need to love you
And when the action has all gone
I'm just a little fool enough to need you
A fool enough too long
Only when you leave, you'll leave in danger
Ooh, I'll make sure that you pay
So give a little passion to a stranger
And take this soul away

Layin' in the after glow 
I only wanna learn what you know 
Ooh, but now you're leavin' 
How many hearts must you break 
How many calls must I make 

But now you're leavin' 
In this world all that I choose has come unbearable 
But love is in your touch 
Ooh, it's killing me so much 
 
Only when you leave
I'll need to love you
And when the action has all gone
I'm just a little fool enough to need you
A fool enough too long
Only when you leave, you'll leave in danger
Ooh, I'll make sure that you pay
So give a little passion to a stranger
And take this soul away

Only when you leave, you'll leave in danger
Ooh, I'll make sure that you pay
So give a little passion to a stranger
And take this soul away
