​Long Term Lovers Of Pain

This song is by Hue And Cry and appears on the album Stars Crash Down (1991).

The letters that he wrote to her were shallow and regrettable
His motorcycle injuries won't make him unforgettable
He's like a firework display that's been doused in her rain
But the only lovers worth a damn
Are the long term lovers of pain

He's made plans for plastic surgeons to be standing by their phones
Upon her preference she can rearrange the structure his bones
He knows he's for the sewer when her laughter's like a drain
But the only lovers worth a damn
Are the long term lovers of pain

She would find him at her elbow buying parma ham and cheese
And she knew her scant encouragement would bring him to his knees
She resented these new powers - felt his passion pulled her reins
But the only lovers worth a damn
Are the long term lovers of pain

So they went down to the Barrowlands. aesthetics on display
And the kitchen floor was voted down for a mattress full of hay
Those stupid Cupid-theories they now blissfully disdained
'Cause the only lovers worth a damn
Are the ones who can kiss in the rain
'Cause the only lovers worth a damn
Are the ones who can never ever be blamed
Beware of the long term lovers of pain...

Plastic surgeons - do be standing by your phones
'Cause that ice-cold lady wants to rearrange my bones...
