I had to choose which one to lose
it was so hard ‘cause they each have their use
it was so hard, tearing apart
now I know you’ve got to get it right from the start

I’ve learned my lesson now
I’ve learned it the hard way
if you want to be in love
you’ve got to pay
and pay and pay

after the pain that was suffered in vain
the dark roads we traveled with nothing to gain
and all the pleasures will always be treasured
a shame it came to such drastic measures

indecision, lack of conviction, slow diction
baby, what you’re trying to say
if you want to (stay in) love
you’ve got to pay
and pay and pay

a flight past the gradual descent from a family
I can tell by the tone of the letters you send
what was once sacred is now filled with hatred
how come such love can be dissipated?

I’ve heard enough of all this poison and decay
if you want to come face-to-face with love
you’ve got to pay
and pay and pay
