  • When it's over, God knows as well as we did
    When we pack up, stack up what's her's and what's his
    When we make up the stories to cover up the shame
    They never will believe, we suddenly fell out of love
    So one takes the bow, one takes the blame

    It won't be easy to throw away so many years in smile
    But don't feel guilty we gave that our best for a while
    But the story we tell our friends must always be the same
    Cause they never would believe it was really no ones fault
    One takes the bow, one takes the blame

    One takes the bow, one takes the blame
    That's the way you have to play the game
    Your friends meet someone, they can talk about and blame
    And God forbid the [?] the same, ain't that a shame?

    When we get lonely and [?] will get now and then
    Just remember that somewhere we both still have a friend
    Love's not forever and ours went as gently as it came
    So for all the years I loved you and you know I really loved you
    You take the bow and I'll take the blame
    You take the bow and I'll take the blame
