Written by: Trevor Bolder, Mick Box & Ken Hensley
Released on: 'Conquest' February 1980


Iím at the point of no return
Iím watching the candle burn - both ends
Thereís a lesson we
Both can learn - this time
So if you wanna make my day
Thereís something youíve gotta say
Now please donít laugh and turn away - this time
I donít wanna make a fuss
But this is the time for us
And I ainít gonna miss the buss - this time

No return
So thereíll be no turning back
Once I know that youíll be by my side
No return
Maybe youíll give me all the love
That you always felt you had to hide
No return

Iíve come a thousand miles
Across the ocean
But that ainít half
As far as my emotion
Now Iíve reached
The point of no return

While on my way down the avenue
I had to stop for a drink or two -or three
Now not that I was stalling you -for time
Itís just I wanted to feel my best
And I almost passed the test
I need your loviní to do the rest -this time

No return - so please donít ever do
What youíve done so many times before
No return
Because Iíve made up my mind
That this time Iíll make it
Thruí your door
No return

I rode above the clouds
So far below me
But didnít get as high as
When you hold me
Now Iíve reached
The point of no return

Iím at the point of no return
Iím watching the candle burn
Both ends
Thereís a lesson we
Both can learn - this time
I donít wanna make a fuss
But this is the time for us
And I ainít gonna miss the buss
This time

No return
So thereíll be no turning back
Once I know that
Youíll be by my side
No return
Maybe youíll give me all the love
You always felt you had to hide
No return

I rode above the clouds
So far below me
But didnít get as high as
When you hold me
Now Iíve reached
The point of no return

No return - so please donít ever do
What youíve done so many times before
No return
Because Iíve made up my mind
That this time Iíll make it
Thruí your door
No return

Iíve come a thousand miles
Across the ocean
But that ainít half
As far as my emotion
Now Iíve reached
The point of no return

No return
No return
No return
No return
