The Price Of Love

Album: To Lose My Life… (2009)
  • "Don't lay a finger" I said but he held her with five
    Kissed the crest of her lips and put his hand on her thigh
    "One million in a week or the girl's gonna go"
    "I'd kill you in a second" he laughed "yeah, I know"

    I won eight hundred thousand on a game show
    But it's not enough to win her back
    As my tears hit the floor he still said "no"
    "Come on man, give me some slack"
    I looked at the case, he said "I'll show you her blood"
    I screamed down the phone line "so is this the price of love?"

    When I stare in your eyes I see the image of God
    Well, girl listen out for the phone call and pray for a flood
    I called at a quarter past nine and said "I've done all I can"
    He said "you win some, you lose some, I feel bad for you, man"
    He slammed down the phone and took his coat from the bed
    She said "what happens now?" "well, to your husband you're dead"
    She said "I love you" and pleaded for her hero to stay
    But knew deep inside that he'd planned it this way

    "I gave him my heart now he's left it to die
    And I know I can't go back"
    He walked out the room shouted "see you around"
    She said "come on give me some slack"
    He said "there's no hope but babe you can wait for that dove"
    She screamed from the window "So is this the price of love?"
    Said "is this the price of love?"
    Said "is this the price of love?"

    So is this the price of love?
    So is this the price of love?
    So is this the price of love?
    So is this the price of love?
    So is this the price of love?
    So is this the price of love?
    So is this the price of love? Writer/s: Charles Cave, Harry McVeigh, Jack Brown
