It's easy in the confidence of a warm heart
To observe how other lovers criticise
When their turn comes to part They grow uncivilised
Wasn't friendship going to carry us
When love ran out?
Didn't we know What respect was all about?
But now it would seem That's all forgotten
(I didn't want it to end like this)
And I don't even know (I didn't want it to end)
When we lost the way
Oh no no no Not me and you Not we two Oh no-didn't we agree
Parting would be painless
I remember how in the safety of our love
We swore we'd never let that state arise
And if one had had enough We would be civilised
By watching we could avoid The same mistakes
We would tread the soft way out For the other's sake
Can it be possible Is it happening this way
We are the same two people Tearing up in anger Tearing everything in complicated knots
Not caring, not giving, not giving a damn
