Oh my love, this has been the hardest station,
Travelling on till you don’t know what to say,
And now you see the change in me, when I get so tired,
There’s a price to pay, for your hearts desire.

In all these years, you and I have been together,
You trusted me, leaving me to show the way.
And now you find that I was blind, no use calling me a liar,
There’s a price to pay, for your hearts desire

While you’ve been living in a different world,
I’ve been sitting here waiting,
While you’ve been living in a different world,
I’ve been saving my love for you, in the way that you’d want me to,
I’ve been crying over you so long.

And now you’ve got everything you ever wanted,
But money can’t buy you a satisfied mind.
What can you do when a dream comes true
And you can’t go any higher,
There’s a price to pay for your hearts desire.

One man dreams of silver and gold, another man dreams of saving his soul,
It’s just an illusion and nothing but dreams within dreams
Don’t look down, don’t look back when you’re walking on the wire
There’s a price to pay for your hearts desire.

While you’ve been living in a different world….

One of these days, we’re going to find the right direction,
And the life that we knew, we’re going to leave it all behind.
I’ve had enough of all that stuff, let’s not wallow in the mire,
That’s the price you pay for your hearts desire.
