When we look at each other now,
There's no love in our eyes.
And when we talk to each other now,
We just criticize.
And we're trying to be lovers now,
We never had to try before.
Where's that feeling,
That special feeling,
We're not feeling any more?
Chorus:
We can't go on, living like this,
Just going through the motions
Every time we kiss.
Just think of all the good times we miss.
Let's get back together,
We can't go on, living like this.
And tonight, once again, I'll reach for you,
And you'll give yourself to me,
Like you always do,
And we'll fall away, unsatisfied,
And lonely at the end.
It was so good, once upon a time,
Can't we love that way again?
Chorus:
We can't go on, living like this,
Just going through the motions
Every time we kiss.
Just think of all the good times we miss.
Let's get back together,
We can't go on, living like this.
Let's get back together,
We can't go on, living like this.
