Like a square peg in a round hole
Like a harp without it's strings
Like a sailor who sails no oceans
Like a bird that has no wings

(Without love)
I am a desert
(Without love)
My light is dim
(Without love)
I have no treasures
(Without love)
I cannot win

Without love we are like ships in the night
Without love selling our souls down the river
Sailing away and forever
Our pleasure is blue

Like a dream that has no dreamer
(Like a)
Like a cloud without a sky
(Like a)
Like a truth with no believer
(Like a)
Like a mother without a child

Without love I have no pleasures
Without love my light is dim
Without love I have no treasures
Without love my chance is slim

Without love we are like ships in the night
Without love selling our souls down the river
Sailing away and forever
Our pleasure is blue
