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)
