Softly you told me what I already knew
No doubt in my mind, no doubt that it was true
The tenderness we had and the love that we used to share
Have long since disappeared if ever really there
Torn by the pleasure and the pain of loving you
I'm so confused I don't know what to do

Just when I'm saying the need for you is gone
That's when I realise the feeling's just as strong

Chorus:

Something in the way you look at me
Something that you just can't hide
Something in the way you look at me
Oh could never be denied
Nothing I can do to change it
Nothing I can even try
Something in the way you look at me
Darlin' I don't know, I don't know why

Too long it's been easy to carry on this way
When the words that really hurt are the ones we don't say
Hard to believe we had a love so strong
And I just can't accept that it could go so wrong

Try to explain I don't know if I can
What will it take to make you understand there's

[Chorus: X2]

Something in the way you look at me
Something I just can't explain
Something in the way you look at me
And I know I've got to try try again
Nothing I can do to change it
Nothing I can even try
Something in the way you look at me
I don't know why
