It Must Have Been Lust

After It Must Have Been Love by Roxette

 

(must have been lust, but it’s over now)

 

Lies and whispers on my pillow,

I made excuses so she wouldn’t frown.

I loved the lovely and made them happy

In the bedroom and all around.

 

Can’t touch them now, even my eyes are far away.

 

It must have been lust, but it’s over now.

It may have felt good, but I’ve lost it somehow.

It must have been lust, but it’s over now.

From the moment You appeared, my time began to run out.

 

I remember believing in being together,

In sharing a life, in heart-to-hearts.

But I’ve turned inside and now the longing

Has left me bereft and I’ve dropped my guard.

 

Memories from back in the day are fading away.

 

It must have been lust, but it’s over now.

It was all that I wanted, now I’m living without.

It must have been lust, but it’s over now.

It’s gone where the water flows, and where the wind blows.

 

Yeah, it must have been lust, but it’s over now.

It may have felt good, but I’ve lost it somehow.

It must have been lust, but it’s over now.

From the moment You appeared, my time began to run out.
