Love Rusts

This song is by Starship and appears on the album Knee Deep in the Hoopla (1985).

Here I am now
Somewhere on the highway
I just checked into some low-rent room
I call my service back in San Francisco
Tell my landlord
I'll be home by June

But what about me, boy
Back in California
What about the blue-eyed girl
You're but a child
You held me for ransom
Like some beautiful bandit
Going down for the third time
Drowning in your life

Love rusts when it rains on romance
Thunder rolls in on a clear blue day
We used to shine like the eye of a diamond
But something happened, the weather changed

I should have known better
You read just like a roadmap
Staying in one place
Doesn't interest you at all

Maybe I don't move
As fast as I used to
But youth is something
We can't hold on to long

Love rusts when it rains on romance
Hailstones heavy on this empty heart
It crowds the window where I used to watch you
Down by the shoreline in the dark

Love rusts when it rains on romance
(Oh, don't you know that my love rusts)
Thunder rolls in on a clear day
(Oh, hold me, yeah)
We used to shine like the eye of a diamond
But something happened, the weather changed

Something happened and the weather changed

Something happened, then the weather changed

Ooh, I tell you we used to shine

(We used to shine, oh, how love rusts)
(We used to shine, oh, how love rusts)

We used to shine

Ooh, we used to shine
Well, you know

(We used to shine, oh, how love rusts)
(We used to shine, oh, how love rusts)
(We used to shine, oh, how love rusts)
(We used to shine, oh, how love rusts)
