Lovers and best friends
Are just examples of
Heroes and villains
In an opera
Maybe I'm cynical but
It seems like it's never enough
Fake conversations, negotiations
Never letting up

I know you know
So let's build an Ivory Tower
That will hide, back-up
And will shelter both of us
And suffer all the wars we have to fight
Cos love isn't always right

Trouble with feeling
Seems like it's all just a game
Puzzled, defeating
And always the same
Excellent beginnings
Kisses, tenderness
Terrible endings
Players defending
The hits and the misses

I know you know
So lets build an Ivory Tower
That will hide, back-up
And shelter both of us
And stand through all the wars we have to fight
Cos love isn't always right

Sad but right
Sad and…

I know what happens
When you've got a story to tell
And no one is understanding
No one will give you a chance
I know they don't believe you
I know

I know you know
So let's build an Ivory Tower
That will hide, back-up
And will shelter both of us
And suffer all the wars we have to fight
Cos love isn't all I know
You know
So let's build an Ivory Tower
That will hide, back-up
And shelter both of us
And suffer all the wars we have to fight
Cos love isn't always right

It's sad but right
