The eBay auction 153095074575 displays a lyrics sheet from the album, but in a poor resolution. I read the lyrics shown there as

THE REWARD
As recorded by Gay and Terry Woods on “Tender Hooks” (1978)

Pretty frost on the window, there's snow in my heart,
You’re leavin’ tomorrow on a late-mornin’ plane.
I stayed awake all night to be close to you,
But you didn’t realize I was falling in love with you.

I didn’t see this one coming; it took me unaware
Out under the street lights and those dusty blue skies.
You awoke my sleeping heart, started all these foolish dreams,
And you didn’t realize I was fallin’ in love with you.

Oh, is this the reward: just a broken heart,
For loving you, for loving you?

I thought I had true love till you brought this new love,
Then you flew from the island, took my heart away with you.
Now I still see your face each time I close my eyes,
And you’ll never realize I fell in love with you.

Oh, is this the reward: just a broken heart,
For lovin’ you, for lovin’ you?
