You're in deeper than you seem
What you need, what you want
Are not the same thing
I think you're getting sick on the dream

I don't want to see you
Till you know the cost of love
Please don't make me need you
Till you know the cost of love

You told me that we could make it right
Underneath the fear that you would hold me tight
Do you think forevers only last all night

I don't want to see you
Till you know the cost of love
Please don't make me need you
Till you know the cost of love

First it's promises then it's lies
Watch those stares turn to turned-away eyes

You told me that we could make it right
Underneath the fear that you would hold me tight
Do you think forevers only last all night
I don't want to see you
Till you know the cost of love
Please don't make me need you
Till you know the cost of love

Till you know the cost
Of love
