In Heaven's name why are you walking away?
Hang on to your love.
In Heaven's name why do you play these games?
Hang on to your love.

Take time if you're down on luck.
It's so easy to walk out on love.
Take your time if the going gets tough.
It's so precious.

So if you want it to get stronger you'd better not let go.
You've got to hold on longer if you want you love to grow.
Got to stick together, hand in glove.
Hold on tight, don't fight.
Hang on to your love.

In Heaven's name why are you walking away?
Hang on to your love.
In Heaven's name why do you play these games?
Hang on to your love.

Be brave when the journey is rough,
It's not easy when you're in love.
Don't be ashamed when the going gets tough
It's not easy,
Don't give up.

If want it to get stronger you'd better not let go.
You got to hold on longer if you want you love to grow.
Got to stick together, hand in glove.
Hold on tight, don't fight.
Hang on to your love.

In Heaven's name why are you walking away?
Hang on to your love.
In Heaven's name why do you play these games?
Hang on to your love.

So if want it to get stronger you'd better not let go.
You got to hold on longer if you want you love to grow.
Got to stick together, hand in glove.
Hold on tight, don't fight.
Hang on to your love.

In Heaven's name why are you walking away?
Hang on to your love.
In Heaven's name why do you play these games?
Hang on to your love.

When you find a love, don't let it walk away.
When you find your love, you got to make it stay.
Don't let it walk away.
When you find your love, you got to make it stay.

You've got to hang on to your love.
You've got to hang on to your love.
Why are you walking away?
Why do you play these games?
