I couldn't believe it, the look in your eyes
You said you were leaving and this was the night
You told me your reasons, something inside
And knew in your heart, girl, love was alive

You were just passing time
Taking love in the easy way
Wasted mind, giving nothing away

I tried to relate it, to something I said
Maybe I should have waited, gone ahead
Then it was hard to bear
Taking love in the easy way
Hard to care, giving nothing away
Giving nothing away

You were like a movie star
Seen too much, gone too far
You were sellin', I was sold
So the story goes

[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]

You were like a movie star
Seen too much, gone too far
You were sellin', I was sold
As the story goes

Passing time
Taking love in the easy way
Wasted mind, giving nothing away
Giving nothing away
Giving nothing away

Oh no, I couldn't believe it
Oh no, I couldn't believe it
Oh no, I couldn't believe it
Oh no, I couldn't believe it
Oh no, I couldn't believe it
Oh no, I couldn't believe it
Oh no...
