You called me from the room in your hotel
All full romance for someone that you met
And telling me how sorry you were

Leaving so soon and that you'll miss me sometimes
When you're alone, do I feel lonely too?

You have no right to ask me how I feel
You have no right to speak to me so kind
We can't go on, holding on to time
So for now we'll go on living separate lives

Well, I have learned to let you go
And if you lost your love for me, you'll never let it show, oh no
There was no way to compromise
So now we're living, now we're living separate lives

Ooh, it's so difficult, love leads to isolation
So you build that wall, yes, you build that wall
And you make it stronger, no

You have no right to ask me how I feel, oh no
You have no right to speak to me so kind
Some day I might, I just might find myself looking in your eyes
But for now, we'll go on living separate lives

Yes, for now, we'll go on living separate lives
Separate lives
