Stephen Duffy & The Lilac Time – Nothing Can Last lyrics

I dare not say your name
I know you feel the same
And I fear I might say out loud
That I love you 'cause I do

If you are the answer
Then love is like cancer
It's killing me faster than time

I want to tell someone I hurt
Maybe I should tell you first
But I think you might be afraid
That I'm dying of you

If you are the partner
And loving gets harder
Pretend I'm a stranger as well

Don't drink tonight
If you don't want us to fight
The moments of abuse
Should not be an excuse
From moving on, having fun
And being the only one

I know that you love me
And although I love you
We both know that nothing can last
