Love Rusts
by Starship



Here I am now, somewhere on the highway
I just checked into some low-rent room
I call my service back in San Francisco
Tell my landlord, I'll be home by June

But what about me, boy, back in California
What about the blue-eyed girl you call a child
You held me for ransom, like some beautiful bandit
Going down for the third time, drowning in your life

Love rusts when it rains on romance
Thunder rolls in on a clear blue day
We used to shine like the eye of a diamond
But something happened, the weather changed

I should have known better, you read just like a road map
Staying in one place doesn't interest you at all
Maybe I don't move as fast as I used to
But youth is something we can't hold on too long

Love rusts when it rains on romance
Hailstones heavy on this empty heart
It crowds the window where I used to watch you
Down by the shoreline in the dark

Love rusts when it rains on romance
Thunder rolls in on a clear blue day
We used to shine like the eye of a diamond
But something happened, the weather changed

Something happened and the weather changed

Something happened, then the weather changed

Ooh, I tell you we used to shine (how love rusts)
(We used to shine, how love rusts)
We used to shine
Ooh, we used to shine, you know
(We used to shine, how love rusts, we used to shine, how love rusts)
(We used to shine, how love rusts, we used to shine, how love rusts)
