"When It Comes To You" as written by and Mark Knopfler....
If we can't get along we oughtta be apart
And I'm wondering where'd you get that cold, cold heart
Set me free, sign my release
I'm tired of being the villain of the piece

You been givin' me a bad time
Tell me what'd I do
How come I always get a hard time
Honey when it comes to you
Sayin' things that you didn't have to
How come I always get a hard time
Honey when it comes to you

You only get one life, this I know
I wanna get my licks in now before I go
The fire of love is dead and cold
I gotta satisfy the hunger in my soul

And you been givin' me a bad time
Tell me what'd I do
How come I always get a hard time
Honey when it comes to you
Sayin' things that you didn't have to
How come I always get a hard time
Honey when it comes to you

    General CommentGlad you got the line "the villain of the piece" correct. Most lyric site have it "peace" which makes little sense. A person with a background in journalism (as Mark has) would refer to a story as a "piece".

    General CommentLyrics are self-explanatory. One of the better songs on the crappy "On Every Street" album with a neat little guitar riff.
