Nobody Wins

Album: The Fox (1981)

  • They must have loved each other once
    But that was many years ago
    And by the time I came along
    Things were already going wrong
    I felt the pain in their pretense
    The side they tried hard not to show
    But through the simple eyes of youth
    It wasn't hard to see the truth

    And in the end nobody wins
    When love begins to fall apart
    And it's the innocent who pay
    When broken dreams get in the way
    The game begins, the game nobody wins

    They must have loved each other once
    Before the magic slipped away
    And as their life became a lie
    What love remained began to die
    I used to hide beneath the sheets
    I prayed that time would find a way
    But with the passing of the years
    I watched as laughter turned to tears


    We used to love each other once
    With all the passion we possessed
    But people change as time goes by
    Some feelings grow while others die
    But if we learn from what we see
    And face the truth while we still can
    Then though the passion may be gone
    Some kind of love can still live on
