​Mercenary

This song is by The Go-Go's and appears on the album Talk Show (1984) and on the compilation album Return to the Valley of The Go-Go's (1994).

He's crying inside
Can't tear the hurt out
Life's rushing by
LIke and old movie backdrop
The radio's blasting
Song after song
About the big romance
That went all wrong

She says:
I just wanted to make you
I never meant to break you
He says:
Have some mercy on me
Do you have to be
Such a mercenary

She's scheming inside
Can't stop the wheels turning
Been through it before
There's no profit or learning
She's not really bad
Just a gold-plated heart
So scared to be alone
It rips her apart

She says:
I just wanted to make you
I never meant to break you
He says:
Have some mercy on me
Do you have to be
Such a mercenary
