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 simply fell out of love
So one takes the bow, one takes the blame

It won't be easy
To throw away so many years and smile
But don't feel guilty
We gave it 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 one's 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, that my friends need the same
Ain't that a shame?

When we get lonely
And lonely we'll 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, I'll take the blame
You take the bow, I'll take the blame
