lyrics

Number one know that it's not fair
Number two know that you can't care
Number three know that it's nowhere
But in your heart

Love on the lips of your lover
Sweet wine you long to savor
(A taste that gets lost in your mind)
You can try your best to preserve it
But it will leave you blind

Don't lay it down for the rest of the clowns
Don't lay it down for the rest are all fools
Don't lay it down for the rest of the world
It's only the facts of love

My father once long ago warned me not to expect any kind of reward
For traveling the path of suffering in the name of love
He said confusion is par for the course my child
And love the most dangerous game
You may think that you can tame it
But it will leave you lame

Don't lay it down for the rest of the clowns
Don't lay it down for the rest are all fools
Don't lay it down for the rest of the world
It's only the facts of love
