Paying The Price Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

One thing I've never learned is how to give up
So it's my destiny to bear this fate
They say that I'm still young but I'd better hurry up
And they're talking 'bout change
And it's a little too late

I'm really not just jumping to conclusions
It's all a matter of fact clear of illusions
You'll never love me the way I love you
So I'm paying the price
All my life

Just when I think I'm moving along
You come back singing a different song
A song of love, a song of sweet regret
Full of promises which are never met
And I'm paying the price
All my life

I know I'll love you still when I have grown old
Though you'll have taken all of my good years
And you'll have taken every chance away from me
My master for life
All my life

Just when I think you'll let me be
I'll awake knowing you've been haunting me
All day long I'll hear you singing in my head
The voice I love, the voice I dread
And I'm paying the price
All my life

Just when I think I'm finally free
I hear a voice gently calling me
Saying I'm just a little melody
What could be the harm in writing me?
And I'm paying the price
All my life

And I'm paying the price
All my life
Paying the price
All my life
Paying the price
