It is true maybe

You never ask for much

But when your heart’s been broken into tiny little pieces

Who will pick them up

You know who’ll pick them up


That’s just like love

To see you through


You live with the silence

It wraps your every mood

With tender velvet fingers

And they cling just like the ivy on a sunny roof

If that’s what it takes to prove

That you live with your weakness

You face it every day

But when you play the let’s make lovers game

Someone has to pay

You know who’ll pay and pay and pay


If your face hurts

Feel like a bruised dog on a dusty street

But you’ve got lipstick on your feet

Lose your sad and wizened stare

Reach out and I’ll be there

I will set your senses alight

And blow them out one by one


That’s just like love

To see you through

That’s just like love

To see you through
