10cc - The things we do for love
Tekst en muziek: Eric Stewart en Graham Gouldman
(1976)






Too many broken hearts have fallen in the river
Too many lonely souls have drifted out to sea
You lay your bets and then you pay the price
The things we do for love
The things we do for love



Communication is the problem to the answer
You’ve got her number and your hand is on the phone
The weather’s turned and all the lines are down
The things we do for love
The things we do for love



Like walking in the rain and the snow
When there’s nowhere to go
And you’re feeling like a part of you is dying
And you’re looking for the answer in her eyes
You think you’re gonna break up
Then she says she wants to make up



Ooh, you make me love you
Ooh, you’ve got a way
Ooh, you’ve had me crawling up the wall



Like walking in the rain and the snow
When there’s nowhere to go
And you’re feeling like a part of you is dying
And you’re looking for the answer in her eyes
You think you’re gonna break up
Then she says she wants to make up



Ooh, you make me love you
Ooh, you’ve got a way
Ooh, you’ve had me crawling up the wall



A compromise would surely help the situation
Agree to disagree, but disagree to part
When after all it’s just a compromise
For the things we do for love
The things we do for love
The things we do for love
The things we do for love
The things we do for love
The things we do for love
