NOTHING TO GAIN

By John D. Loudermilk

What makes us keep meeting each other down the street
What makes us keep holding each other in the shadow
It's no use and we both know it's true
We've got nothing to gain but everything to lose

We know that we've both got better sence than this
But we don't think about it at the time
But when we're meeting at our secret rendez-vous
We've got nothing to gain but everything to lose

What makes two people
Risk all they have
For just one moment
Of secret love

Why should we have to use our best friend's car?
To sit and talk and to be alone
We know that we're just two silly, crazy fools
With nothing to gain and everything to lose
With nothing to gain and everything to lose
