One more sad tomorrow
And I'm not very good at hiding my sorrow
It's not the same without you
So alone and so afraid
I thought we had it made
What about us, what about the way
We were so in love, when we were together
I thought you'd never leave
Now I know this time you're gone forever

Only love can break your heart
Fill you with desire
And tear you all apart
Only love can make you cry
Only love knows why

One more night without you
I'm just trying to pretend that you're coming back again
You know I never meant to doubt you, oh no
We were young and we were free
Now I can't believe this has happened to me

What about us, what about the way
We were so in love, when we were together

Only love can break your heart
Fill you with desire
And tear you all apart
Only love can make you cry
Only love knows why

Gonna be a long hard road without you
And there's one thing you should know
Tell me who will I turn to
When I get in trouble
I really don't want you to go, no

Tell me who can I turn to
When I get in trouble
Baby please don't leave me
Can't you see you must believe me

Only love can break your heart
Fill you with desire
And tear you down, the minute that you fall apart

Only love can make you cry
Only love knows why, oh no
Only love can tear you down
Only love knows why, oh no

Only love will make you cry
