harder to leave a friend than a lover lyrics – joey tempest

i come to you
as an act of faith
please convince me that i´m wrong
when i say we don´t belong
and it´s not too late

i sense the call
from your soul to mine
is it meant to hurt this way
every hour, every day
it steals our time

and it all comes clear
as if the moment draws near

that it´s harder to leave a friend than a lover
all the dreams that you have built
leaves you with a sense of guilt
in the eyes of the other

so hear we stand
a stubborn woman, a stubborn man
is it worth to carry on
is it time we moved along
have we done all we can?

and the damage done
oh, can we overcome

couse it´s harder to leave a friend than a lover
you might love the way you touch
but it will never mean as much
as when you care for each other

is it all we can say?
we never wanted it this way

cause it´s harder to leave a friend than a lover
the wounds will run so deep
and the friendship that you keep
will never recover

yeah, it´s harder to leave a friend than a lover
when you know someone so well
you would rather walk through h*ll
before you hurt one another
