love is like a circle
with two people, half and half
till one of them is slaughtered
like a sacrificial calf
.
a half a million dollars
a half a pound of gold
she'd do it for a quarter
or at least, that's what i'm told
.
on the one hand there is romance
fills the heart but not the head
on the other there is finance
fills the drawers with daily bread
.
a half a million dollars
a half a pound of gold
she'd do it for a quarter
or at least, that's what i'm told
.
the circle is now broken
and the trust is broken too
there is no hope for magic
after all that i've been through
.
a half a million dollars
a half a pound of gold
she'd do it for a quarter
or at least, that's what i'm told
