White Lies – The Price Of Love lyrics

"Don't lay a finger" I said but he held her with five
Kissed the crest of her lips
And put his hand on her thigh
"One million in a week or the girl's gonne go"
"I'd kill you in a second" He laughed "Yeah I know"

I won eight hundred thousand on a game show
But it's not enough to win her back
As my tears hit the floor he still said
"Come on man give me some slack"
I looked at the case he said "I'll show you her blood"
I screamed down the phoneline
"So is this the price of love?"

When I stare in your eyes I see the image of God
Well girl listen out for the phonecall and pray for a flood
I called at a quarter past nine and said "I've done all I can"
He said "You win some you lose some I feel bad for you man"
He slammed down the phone and took his coat from the bed
She said "What happens now" "Well to your husband you're dead"
She said "I love you" and pleaded for her hero to stay
But knew deep inside that he'd planned it this way

"I gave him my heart now he's left it to die
And I know I can't go back"
He walked out the room shouted "See you around"
She said "Come on give me some slack"
He said "There's no hope but babe you can wait for that dove"
She screamed from the window
"So is this the price of love?"

So is this the price of love?
