When the Love is Good

This song is by BoDeans and appears on the album Home (1989).

Well, I work for the money but it takes my pride.
It takes everything that I got down inside.
Takes half a life just to break even,
And it takes half my money just to have my fun.
And I get so tired of love on the phone.
I'm standin' here when I should be at home.
And the longest nights when I'm far away,
You listen, pretty baby, to the words I say.
"Hey lady, yes I can do anything, wanna be your man.
Hey lady, yes I could do anything when the love is good."
No tears will fall from this angel's eyes.
We'll hold promises where the love never dies.
Old memories, well, I ain't got none,
'Cause soft, sweet angel, now, you're the one.
Well, I guess I'll go find my way, get down on my knees and pray.
All this talk 'bout love someday, when, baby, I'm just givin' it away.
Now, no tears gonna fall, no one's gonna cry.
We'll hole up in heaven, let the world go by.
Longest nights when I'm far away,
You listen, pretty baby, to the words I say.
