​The Rising Cost Of Love

This song is by Elkie Brooks and appears on the album Live And Learn (1979).

It's hard to keep it like it started,
It hurts so bad when hearts are parted
I try harder every day
Sacrifice but it won't pay

The rising cost of love
It's costing me, oh it's costing you
I said the rising cost of love
It's costing me, oh it's costing you

In my mind you hold a special place
Memories I don't have to erase
Signs of love, a smile on my face
Now that I've found a frown in its place

The rising cost of love
It's costing me, oh it's costing you
I said the rising cost of love
It's costing me, babe it's costing you

There must be something that we can do
To solve this problem between me and you
It took so long to get where we are now
To let it all slip away and not even know how

The rising cost of love
It's costing me, oh it's costing you
I said the rising cost of love
It's costing me, oh it's costing you

(The rising cost of love)
(The rising cost of love)
(The rising cost of love)
(The rising cost of love)

The rising cost of love
It's costing me, oh babe, it's costing you
The rising cost of love
It's costing me, and it's costing you

Baby, let me tell you that the rising cost of love
It's costing me, it's costing you
The rising cost of love
It's costing me, oh it's costing you
