No one ever tells you
What it's like to love and lose
How it feels to waken
And have breakfast with the blues
How to go on living
How to face another day
No, no one ever tells you the way

No one ever tells you
How it feels to walk alone
Listening for those footsteps
Through the echo of your own
Suddenly it hits you
All those dreams weren't worth a dime
'Cause no one ever tells you in time

Long before
The icy winds of winter
Autumn tells the swallows
Time to fly
So why do we pretend
Till the bitter end
Till it breaks our hearts
To say good-bye
Well -

No one ever tells you
That it's just another fling
No one ever warns you
When your heart begins to sing
Someone tells you later
All is fair in love and war
But no one ever tells you before

Long before
Our love boat's torn asunder
We can hear the thunder
Of the falls
So why do we go on
Sailing madly on
Till all we had is gone
Beyond recall
Beyond recall

No one ever tells you
That it's just another fling
No one ever warns you
When your heart begins to sing
Someone tells you later
All is fair in love and war
But no one ever tells you before

It never comes easy
'Cause no one
No one, no one
Ever tells you
Tells you
No one ever tells you before
No one ever tells you before
