It's a human sign when things go wrong
When the scent of her lingers and temptation's strong
Into the boundary of each married man, sweet deceit comes calling and negativity lands
Cold, cold heart, hard done by you
Some things look better, baby, just passing through
And it's no sacrifice, just a simple word
It's two hearts living in two separate worlds
But it's no sacrifice, no sacrifice, it's no sacrifice at all

Mutual misunderstanding after the fact
Sensitivity builds a prison in the final act
We lose direction, no stone unturned
No tears to damn you when jealousy burns
Cold, cold heart, hard done by you
Some things look better, baby, just passing through
And it's no sacrifice, just a simple word
It's two hearts living in two separate worlds
But it's no sacrifice, no sacrifice, it's no sacrifice at all

Cold, cold heart, hard done by you
Some things look better, baby, just passing through
And it's no sacrifice, just a simple word
It's two hearts living in two separate worlds
But it's no sacrifice, no sacrifice, it's no sacrifice at all
No sacrifice at all
No sacrifice at all
No sacrifice at all
No sacrifice at all

    Sacrifice; in my opinion, refers as if someone risk her/his lives to save someone else life... For i.e. Jesus had died in the cross to save your life; as he is the one who loved you and care for you the most no matter who you are... Either black or white, we are one... Always

    When things aren't good at home, other people linger in your mind. If you follow thru, even if the other person hurts, they've built a wall and are too proud to cry. Everything falls apart. If you sacrafice the temptation of being with someone who is essentially a stranger, you don't lose what you have already been building. Therefore, it is no sacrifice at all. That's what i get out of it!!
