Kim Carnes/Donna Weiss/Collin Ellingson)
You can't abuse a love affair
Take for granted what you think is there
Let the silence fill the loney air around us
The truth falls like pieces of dreams
Invisible walls that I can't see
How can it happen Why can't we just be
What is it makes us act so crazy
Riskin' it all
Over passion and pain
Stipped to the soul
We hold on for safety
And we give it all we know how
So don't cry now
The risk is all in the take
We see it all when it's too late
And we dance so fast
To keep the flame inside
What is it makes us act so crazy
Riskin' it all
Over passion and pain
Stipped to the soul
We hold on for safety
And we give it all we know how
So don't cry now
Do you remember
When nothing else mattered
But the fire in your eyes
How do we find ourselves
Caught in this battle
Of what to do with our lives
What is it makes us act so crazy
Riskin' it all
Over passion and pain
Stipped to the soul
We hold on for safety
And we give it all we know how
So don't cry now
