Lines

Well you've got your reasons
And you've got your pride
You've got your friend
You've got your holy woman's
Sixth sense
Without love you got nothing
But lines
Without love you have nothing
You've got your freedom
You got your job
You got your money to spend
On your latest heartthrob
Without love you got nothing
Without love you have nothing
Without love you got nothing
But lines
I know that women like you
Think that love is a padded cell for two
Without love you can see nothing
Without love you can feel nothing
Without love you can hear nothing
But lines
