"Loving You’s a Dirty Job (But Somebody’s Gotta Do It)"

Boy:
When the sky is falling and you’re looking ‘round for somewhere to hide
Did you ever call out to someone?
Did you ever call out to me?
I’ve never been gone
I’ve been right here by your side
There ain’t nothin’ but clouds
There ain’t nothin’ but clouds in your eyes

Why don’t you believe it when you finally found the truth?
You’ve been drinking poison water from the fountain of youth
Why don’t you stop tearing up everyone you need the most?
You’re so busy trying to get even
You never even try to get close

I can’t explain it away
Doesn’t make any sense
To know what it’s like
I guess you gotta go through it
Guess you gotta go through it
Guess you gotta go through it
It doesn’t matter baby
Loving you’s a dirty job
(loving you, loving you’s a dirty job)
But somebody’s gotta do it

Girl:
There were times when we’d never fake it
There were times we would always make it
There were times we would take it to the limit
And we’d never, ever, ever leave each other alone
We were flesh and blood and bone
There were times we had it all
There were times we had it all

Boy:
There were times when we took our chances
There were times we were damn good dancers

Girl:
There were times when we heard all the answers

Both:
In the bleeding of the drummer and the riches of the rock and the roll

Boy:
I can see right through your soul
There were times we had it all
There were times we had it all

Girl:
If your fears could only be forgotten
We could pull all the barriers down
Would you follow your dreams’ desire?
Would you follow your secret dreams and forbidden fire?
Let’s peel out of this town

Both:
It’s been nothing but dreams
It’s been nothing but dreams until now

Girl:
You’re never gonna see it

Both:
You got your head stuck in the sand

Girl:
It’s the land of the free and easy street

Both:
It’s the home of the damned

Girl:
Oh, you’re never gonna see it

Both:
You better open up your eyes
You’re the only one who’s left
Who’s gonna believe all your lies?

Girl:
I can’t explain it away
It doesn’t make any sense

Both:
To know what it’s like
I guess you gotta go through it
You gotta go through it
You gotta go
It doesn’t matter baby

Both:
Loving you’s a dirty job
(loving you, loving you’s a dirty job)
But somebody’s gotta do it

Boy:
There were times when our bodies glistened
There were times that we can’t stop missing

Girl:
There were times when we’d lay in bed and listen

Both:
To the pounding, pounding chorus of our desperate hearts

Boy:
Nothing could have torn us apart

Both:
There were times we had it all
There were times we had it all …

Both:
There were times when we fought like tigers
There were times we were damn good liars …
There were times when we took our chances
There were times we were damn good dancers
Loving you’s a dirty job
But somebody’s gotta do it

There were times when we fought like tigers
There were times we were damn good liars
There were times we’d extinguish every fire
That was burning, burning, burning, up each other alive

Boy:
From the heavens on down to the dives

Both:
There were times we lost it all
There were times we lost it all …

Boy:
There were times when our bodies glistened
There were times that we can’t stop missing
There were times that we’d lay in bed and listen
To the pounding, pounding chorus of our desperate hearts
Nothing could have torn us apart
There were times we had it all
There were times we lost it all …
