"As Lovers Do" as written by and Clive Gregson....
You say that theres no spark
but you still burn me when I get too near
you say I broke your heart
well thats the price that you pay I fear

Your kisses taste the same
but your eyes no longer shine
you say that I'm to blame
well thats just fine

Cos what you once desired
now just leaves you tired
the love that once controlled you
now has bought and sold you
one more lonely nightmare
one more than you can care
don't believe it but it's true
that we don't act as lovers do

I cannot fierce your looks
I never said that this would be too great
into romance books
theres always room for a hand of fate

you took my breath away
I took your heart and I made it mine
every dog has his day
and thats just fine

cos things that once you mean
soon become routine
the words of love that matter
turn to idle chatter
doors that once you walk through
now just close above you
nothing ventured nothing new
we don't act as lovers do

Nothing ever lasts
the scene changes from day to day
forget the past
one smile and it ticks away

I never hear you call
just a whisper from time to time
I build up my walls
and thats just fine

Cos all thats in the past
will soon be gone at last
just to be set free
means the world to me
send it down the line
follow fine old time
don't believe it but it's true
that we don't act as lovers do

What you once desired
now just leaves you tired
the love that once controlled you
now has bought and sold you
things that once you mean
soon become routine
the words of love that matter
turn to idle chatter
all thats in the past
will soon be gone at last
just to be set free
means the world to me
send it down the line
follow fine old time
don't believe it but it's true
that we don't act as lovers do
