"You've Got To Pay" as written by and Peter Albert Neil Perrett....
I had to choose, which one to lose
I couldn't do it for they each had their use
It was so hard, tearing apart
Now I know you gotta get it right at the start

I learnt my lesson now
I learnt it the hard way
If you wanna be in love
You've gotta pay and pay and pay

After the pain that was suffered in vain
The dark roads we travelled, with nothing to gain
And though the pleasures, will always be treasured
It's a shame it came to such drastic measures

Indecision, lack of conviction
Slurred diction failing what you're trying to say
If you are a slave to love
You’re gonna pay and pay and pay

Our flightpath’s a gradual descent, from the firmament
I can tell by the tone of the letters you sent
What was once sacred, is now full of hatred
How come such love can be dissipated?

I've had enough of all this poison and decay
If you wanna come face to face with love
You've gotta pay and pay and pay

    General CommentI actually think it's "I couldn't do it cause they each had their use".. I don't know, just seems to be make more sense that way.
