You can’t see it, but you know it’s there
The missing link is everywhere
Feeling dead inside
Trying so hard to make it work, make it last
Nothing you can do, when the love fades
Each evening you peck their cheek, say good night
Go to your room, close your door and turn off the light
You lay there thinking about what might have been
But you realize it’s over, when the love fades
People think that everything is fine
Because you’re wearing a mask that seems to hide
The loneliness, the hurt, and pain inside
No matter how hard you try, nothing’s gonna make it right
When the love fades
Then one day they look into your eyes
They take your hand, say to you
“Darling I’m sorry, but I no longer can play this charade
I feel the distance in your embrace”.
It just seems to happen this way
Nothing you can do, when the love fades…
