Here we are
Just going through the motions
One more time
You looked in my eyes
But you don't see me
Here I am
Feeling like a stranger in your arms
I touch you, I hold you
But lately I don't know you
Something is wrong
But we go on from
Day to day
And we just pretend it all away
We act like nothing's changed
But in our hearts we know it's not the same

Cause we're not makin' love anymore
Baby we're not makin' love like before
We may hold each other tight
Say that everything's all right
But we're not makin' love

Remember when you couldn't
Wait to run into my arms
When the love inside
My heart was all you needed
Remember when you made me
Wish the night would never end
The fire, the thunder, we lived
To love each other
If ever two hearts were one
Then it was yours and mine
But that was another place in time
Now all we have to show
Are memories of a dream we used to know
Cause we're not makin' love anymore
Baby we're not makin' love like before
We may hold each other tight
Say that everything's all right
But we're not makin' love

When did we lose our way
We had it all
Don't know how
It all just slipped away
But can we get it back again
Is it too late
Can we try (can we try)
Just one time
Cause darling.

Cause we're not makin' love anymore
Baby we're not makin' love like before
We may hold each other tight
Say that everything's all right
But we're not makin' love
