Lyrics

Does she seem a little cold when you love her?
Does she turn away when you hold her tight?
Just search your soul and you will discover
How you hurt her night after night
And when was the first time she begged you to love her?
But you turned away and acted like a fool
And when was the first time she lay there and cried?
Well that’s when she started to stop loving you
Do you wonder why she’s turning to another?
And if you love her, you’d better tell her so
‘Cause she’s finding out that anyone will love her
And it won’t be long ’til you’ll have to let her go
And when was the first time she begged you to love her?
But you turned away and acted like a fool
And when was the first time she lay there and cried?
Well, that’s when she started to stop loving you
