We had a love that was our pride
And inspiration to our friends
If lovers had a Nobel Prize
I'm sure that we would win

And, girl, with all that's going
For us just this very day
You come out here and tell me
That our love has got away

I gotta know
How did we lose it, baby
How did we lose our love
How did we lose it, baby

How did we lose it, darling
We had it just a moment ago
It was right here
In the palm of our hand

Now I'm asking you and
You tell me you don't know
Oh, it would be a miracle
If we ever got it back
It'll be like finding
A needle in a haystack

How did we lose it, baby
(How did we lose it, baby)
(How did we lose it, baby)
(How did we lose it, baby)

What do you mean
Talking like you're talking
Girl, I gave you all my love
It's too late to be walking

Now listen, you turn around
Here to me and you better tell me

How did we lose it, baby
How did we lose
(How did we lose it, baby)
All that we had going for us
How did we lose it, baby

We gotta find a way
To pull it back together
Girl, love's grown cold like?

And I don't wanna
Leave this love behind
A true style love is hard to find
Let me put this on your mind, oh

How did we lose it
How did we lose it, baby
You been my whole world
You know you have, girl

Down here on my knees
(How did we lose it
How did we lose it)
Help me find it, please
(How did we lose it
How did we lose it)

Please, baby
(How did we lose it
How did we lose it)
How did we lose it, baby
(How did we lose it
How did we lose it)

Oh, how did we lose it, baby
How did we lose it, baby
How did we lose our love
(How did we lose it, baby)

I thought we had it right here
And I thought it would always be
Now I find myself...
