lyrics

You can talk to me about powder kegs
And how I'm sittin' on one right now
You can warn me about candles at both ends burning
From the outside in
But don't tell me about true love
'Cause I don't think you really know

You need to pay the cost
You need to feel the loss
'Cause love is expensive and free
Love is expensive and free

Talk to me about appearances
I'll tell you lately they mean less and less
Do your best to keep me occupied
It's hard to concentrate I must confess
Don't you tell me about heartbreak
It ain't written in the stars

You need to pay the cost
You need to feel the loss
Love is expensive and free
Love is expensive and free
Love is expensive and free, alright
You got me

Don't you worry 'bout my baby
Her eyes are open all the time
I could never dare deceive her
Much less remove her from my mind
I didn't talk to you about true love
I didn't think you'd understand

We need to pay the cost
We need to feel the loss
Love is expensive and free
Love is expensive and free
Love is expensive and free
