When You’re Not in Love

Words and music by Robbie Smith

It’s not easy to let go of the good times
But it’s too painful to keep them in your heart

When you’re not in love, oh,
When you’re not in love
Joy is just a flicker of the flame that it once was
When the passion ends
And the pain descends
Letters are just paper and friends our only friends

When you’re not in love
When you’re not in love
No one can get through to you, you feel like giving up
When the loving’s done
And you feel you can’t go on
Flowers have no purpose and the sun is just the sun

And though the night to you is as dark as a grieving widow’s glove
Somewhere lightning’s flashing
Flashing across the skies of love

When you’re not in love
When you’re not in love
Time just mopes along like it usually does
When the feeling’s gone
And the right goes wrong
Music has no magic and a song is just a song

And though the night to you is as dark as a grieving widow’s glove
Somewhere lightning’s flashing
Flashing across the skies of love

It’s not easy to let go of the good times
But it’s too painful to keep them in your heart
It’s not easy to let go of the good times
But it’s too painful to keep them in your heart

When you’re not in love
When you’re not in love
When you’re not in love
When you’re not in love
When you’re not in love
