When love gives up
 

We pass, step back, leave a certain gap,

We never touch, no call for that,

We never speak soft words of love,

It's what you get when love gives up.
 

There is no sign that says steer clear,

But something tells me that it's there,

I must confess it was once so good, but

It's what you get when love gives up.
 

I stand real close, but there's no hug,

She knows I'm there but doesn't look,

So I walk away, still out of luck,

It's what you get when love gives up.
 

I've packed my pillow, clock and threads,

I sleep downstairs on the sofa bed,

I'm gone before the shower runs hot,

It's what you get when love gives up.
