Like sailin' on a sailin' ship to nowhere
Love took over my heart like an ocean breeze
As seagulls fly I knew that I was losin'
Love was washed away with the driftin' tide

Oh it's a dirty old shame
When all you get from love is a love song
That's got you layin' up nights just waitin'
For the music to start
It's such a dirty old shame when you got to
Take the blame for a love song
Because the best love songs are written
With a broken heart

And now the tears in my eyes are ever blinding
The future that lies before me I cannot see
(look at, look at, the future I cannot see)
Although tomorrow I know the sun is rising
Lighting up the world for everyone, but not for me

Oh it's a dirty old shame
When all you get from love is a love song
That's got you layin' up nights just waitin'
For the music to start
It's such a dirty old shame when you got to
Take the blame for a love song
Because the best love songs are written
With a broken heart

(look at, look at, the future I cannot see)

Oh it's a dirty old shame
When all you get from love is a love song
(All you get from love is an old love song)
That's got you layin' up nights just waitin'
For the music to start
It's such a dirty old shame when you got to
Take the blame for a love song
(Got to take the blame for an old love song)
Because the best love songs are written
With a broken heart

[Repeat x2]
Oh it's a dirty old shame
When all you get from love is a love song
(All you get from love is an old love song)
That's got you layin' up nights just waitin'
For the music to start
