Falling out of love

This is what it’s like falling out of love
This is the way you lose your very best friend
This is how it feels when it’s all over
This is just the way true love ends
First of all there’s no one to talk to
When there is they just don’t seem to hear
Words don’t seem to matter much anyway
They can’t describe the pain
They can’t explain the fear
Then the nights grow cold and hard to live through
Still you hate to see the morning come
Somehow tomorrow doesn’t matter much anymore
The future holds no promise
Your life’s already done
This is what it’s like falling out of love
This is the way you lose your very best friend
This is how it feels when it’s all over
This is just the way true love ends
The you find your heart no longer flutters
You no longer look through a lover’s eyes
What’s to see when the world falls down around you
You simply can’t believe it
But it comes as no surprise
This is what it’s like falling out of love
This is the way you lose your very best friend
This is how it feels when it’s all over
This is just the way true love ends
What’s the sense of failure
It’s such an incredible loss
It’s all the things you’ll never do
And all the dreams that will never come true
This is what it’s like falling out of love
This is the way you lose your very best friend
This is how it feels when it’s all over
This is just the way true love ends
Oh this is just the way a true love ends
I don’t believe a true love ever ends
