In bed beside you with the curtains drawn

For an hour at least I can pretend we're born

To be together and fate alone is keeping me from you

But there's a price we pay when we live a lie

And you find it hard to meet my eye

When you start to dress as we kiss goodbye

And I know we're coming to

The end of the affair

The end of the affair

I could love you for eternity

The fact remains you don't belong to me

(The end of the affair)

I could tell the story of my love for you

With a detailed list of every rendez-vous

Discreet hotels we've checked into

How and when and where

But a cold recital of the facts would miss

The poetry, the way you kiss

The sense of loss now as come to this

The bitter sweet despair

The end of the affair

The end of the affair

I could love you for eternity

The fact remains you don't belong to me

(The end of the affair)

Well I'm old enough to know right from wrong

So I tell myself I should be strong

In time I'll learn to get along

Without you being near

But I know I'm living when I'm by your side

You're a rollercoaster, a fairground ride

My conscience and desires collide

Like rockets in midair

The end of the affair

The end of the affair

I could love you till the stars don't shine

But I'm not yours and you're not mine

(The end of the affair)

The end of the affair

The end of the affair

I could love you for eternity

The fact remains you don't belong to me

(The end of the affair)

The first few days are gonna drag real slow

I'm gonna think I see you everywhere I go

These are routine symptoms ex-lovers show

The battle scars they share

I already miss your worried smile

Guilty secrets weren't your style

But you had me fooled for a little while

That makes it hard to bear

The end of the affair

The end of the affair

I could love you till the stars don't shine

But I'm not yours and you're not mine

(The end of the affair)
