Name of Song: Automatic interest

In the beginning,
How long does it last,
Love has its way
of dying out fast.

You give it your best,
But something kicks in,
Don’t know what it is,
But feel it’s their sin.

Chorus
Automatic interest,
It comes and it goes,
You don’t share its view
but it urges to close.
What do you do,
A reason appears,
That makes it alright
to say “I’m sorry my dear”.
______

What do you say
when you feel it must end,
What do you say
to who you thought was your friend.

You talk to yourself
to make it OK,
But losing your interest
You lose your own way.

Bridge
What is the change
that occurs during love,
Reminded of things
that you did, kind of.
Hard to own up to
Similar sin,
Forgotten in time
but now blended within.
