The Things We Do For Love

Words & Music:

10 CC


Bm       G                  D             E

Too many broken hearts have fallen in the river.

G        F#sus4            G       A      G    D

Too many lonely souls have drifted out to sea.

You lay your bets and then you pay the price.

The things we do for love, the things we do for love.


Communication is the problem to the answer.

You've got her number and your hand is on the phone.

The weather's turned and all the lines are down.

The things we do for love, the things we do for love.



Like walking in the rain and the snow when there's nowhere to go

            Em                            A

When you're feeling like a part of you is dying.

           Bm              G             E

And you're looking for the answer in her eyes.

    A                  F#m                Bm                Gm

You think you're gonna break up, then she says she wants to make up.


Ebsus4           Eb         Ebsus4            Eb

Ooh, you made me love you.  Ooh, you've got a way.

Ebsus4          Eb              Db9

Ooh, you had me crawling on the floor.


A compromise would surely help the situation.

Agree to disagree but disagree to part.

When after all it's just a compromise.

Of the things we do for love, the things we do for love.

The things we do for love.
