This business of love will never do
This business of love will never die
This business of love will never do
On a midtown bus at 5pm
Knees buckle under and heads are tossed
About money time and remembered slights
Packed so close and packed so tight
Him to implode man overboard
Over all he does and all she owes
As he wages his holy war
Pushes to the rear she pulls the cord
Got off the bus

Not for me and not for you
Not for you and not for I
Not for me and not for you
I've been adding it up
The love we shared and the time we spent
I gotta get bent

To see where it went
Now I gotta get straight
This two bit heart is worth about ten cents
Even though they were together
And even though you never saw'em apart
There was a whole dance floor between them
From the punches pulled
Branded by the words they said
The dew and the lace
And wet their face
In a secret place
But even that couldn't save them
Two years and nights
They were far beyond a cure
And then he said
This business of love will never do
This business of love will never die
This business of love will never do

To see where it went
Now I gotta get straight
This two bit heart is worth about
