We groan like old buildings
every time we’ve got some grief
Our voices crack like wood
and nails become our teeth
It don't matter that we're lovers
It don't matter that we're friends
It can't stay good forever in the end

We're more like Cain and Abel
than old Adam and Eve
You burn me in your passion
Then turn around and leave
It don't matter that we're brothers
It don't matter that we've sinned
It can't stay good forever in the end

Got sixty silver dollars
janglin’ in my jeans
But no amount of money's
gonna buy you back to me
It don't matter that I owe you
fifties, fives or tens
It can't stay good forever in the end

If I could take you by the hand
and lead you through my head
I'd show you all the things
I never knew I should have said
It don't matter that it's over
It don't matter when
It can't stay good forever in the end.
