How on earth will you ever
Say what’s there in your eyes
And reach the point of discussion
Where all the hope in me dies

You’re standing there by the window
Looking out on the day
I’m sitting here with my head in my hands
Thinking I’m just in the way

There’s an awful silence between us
And now it’s making me cry
But the tears are kept there inside you
It’s a big man thing - don’t ask why

The chains of love are asunder
The tune is quietly played
The accusation is fading
I have to learn to be brave

Now we pick up the pieces
And God only know if we will
The end has finally caught us
The love is finally still
