The End of the Affair

In bed beside you with the curtains drawn
For an hour at least I can pretend we're born
To be together and fate alone is keeping me from you
But there's a price we pay when we live a lie
And you find it hard to meet my eye
When you start to dress as we kiss goodbye
And I know we're coming to

The end of the affair
The end of the affair
I could love you for eternity
The fact remains you don't belong to me
(The end of the affair)

I could tell the story of my love for you
With a detailed list of every rendez-vous
Discreet hotels we've checked into
How and when and where
But a cold recital of the facts would miss
The poetry, the way you kiss
The sense of loss now as come to this
The bitter sweet despair

The end of the affair
The end of the affair
I could love you for eternity
But the fact remains you don't belong to me
(The end of the affair)

Well I'm old enough to know right from wrong
So I tell myself I should be strong
In time I'll learn to get along
Without you being near
But I know I'm living when I'm by your side
You're a rollercoaster, a fairground ride
My conscience and desires collide
Like rockets in midair

The end of the affair
The end of the affair
I could love you till the stars don't shine
But I'm not yours and you're not mine
(The end of the affair)

It's over, it's over, it's over

The end of the affair
The end of the affair
I could love you for eternity
The fact remains you don't belong to me
(The end of the affair)

The first few days are gonna drag real slow
I'm gonna think I see you everywhere I go
These are routine symptoms ex-lovers show
The battle scars they share
I already miss your worried smile
Guilty secrets weren't your style
But you had me fooled for a little while
That makes it hard to bear

The end of the affair
The end of the affair
Now I could love you till the stars don't shine
But I'm not yours and you're not mine
(The end of the affair)
It's over, (it's over), it's over.
