THE BILLS WE PAY (© John MacLean 2014)

We pay our bills for concrete things, then we pay our dues
The deepest debt you'll ever owe is to someone dear to you

Boy whose mother died after a bitter fight
Even now he can't undo the end of the distant night
Last day with your best friend before he goes to war
Can't find the words to wish him home and more

We pay our bills for concrete things, then we pay our dues
The deepest debt you'll ever owe is to someone dear to you

These sums we owe, some past due, so often hard to pay
But some we pay quite willingly, like those I own today
Owe for love given, chances to make good
On my vow to love you like I should

We pay our bills for concrete things, then we pay our dues
What a lovely price I pay to fall in love with you...
Fall in love with you
