"That's What You Do" as written by and John Elefante....
That's what you do when you love someone

Pick up my dagger
and put it straight through my heart
It's always the same to me
The freedom of poison
I had it straight from the start
I thought it was just meant for me

Put out the fire
It makes me go insane
It won't do me good anymore
I should trust in the manner
It's always good for the soul
It's not detrimental to the cause
It's not detrimental to the cause

You always found the time
to get to the heart of the matter
You gave it to me straight
when you knew I was hurting
You threw me out a line
and told me never to give it up
You took me under your wing
and gave me more than I deserve
That's what you do when you love someone
That's what you do

Put me in a lineup
and you can pick out my face
I'm guilty as charged of the crime
The damage is done
and now my sentence is in
I won't have to do any time

And I'll never look back
when I walk out of this place
I'm not that man anymore
The hands are clean now
The blood stains are gone
I'll walk through that open door
I'll walk through that open door

You always found the time
to get to the heart of the matter
You gave it to me straight
when you knew I was hurting
You threw me out a line
and told me never to give it up
You took me under your wing
and gave me more than I deserve
That's what you do when you love someone
That's what you do, oh
That's what you do when you love someone
That's what you do
When you love someone

You threw me out a line
and told me never to give it up
You took me under your wing
and gave me more than I deserve
That's what you do when you love someone
That's what you do, oh
That's what you do when you love someone
That's what you do

When you love someone
When you love someone
That's what you do
