She plaits her hair, I bite my nails 
We balance love on the scales 
I wind the clock and go to bed 
Our love is hanging on a thread 
She gets undressed, I undress too 
The draft is cold in my bedroom 
We cuddle up and say goodnight 
It's all the love there is tonight. 
I can't be brave enough 
She cannot say what we're feeling 
Day after day 
We're going through the motions 
We find it hard to let each other go 

She boils the eggs, I make the tea 
Outside the sun shines on the street 
We're at that point here love has gone 
The fuse is lit, it won't be long 
I take a walk, she cleans the house 
This is the end, I'm in no doubt 
But neither one of us can show 
The slightest sign of letting go
