about

This is political love song. Or a romantic protest song. Possibly both.

lyrics

A democratic scene – you know I’m keen to win a vote – from you, from you…
I exercise my right, put up a fight, you know it’s time to see what I can do, oh…

Don’t you understand the world could be a better place
If only we could ditch the party line

CHORUS
Cos we’re tough on love and we’re tough on the causes of lovers
we’re tough on love and we’re tough on the causes of lovers
cos everything changes and friends turn to strangers, it’s true
we’re tough on the causes of love…

an interesting speech, I’m sure that each of us could feel your pain, as you took the strain
the rhetoric of love fits like a glove but now you really should get off your knees – it looks like rain

the legislative thunder and the lightning of romance – (oh can’t you hear them)
insisting we take shelter, take this chance

CHORUS
we’re tough on love and we’re tough on the causes of lovers
we’re tough on love and we’re tough on the causes of lovers
cos everything changes and friends turn to strangers, it’s true
we’re tough on the causes of love…

toe the party line...

I solemnly declare I will repair and I will heal these wounds of love
So look into my eyes, a man who cries is surely sensitivity itself – a new kind of man

The ignorance and vanity, hypocrisy and vice
Well, these are not as bad as love and you don’t need to tell me twice

CHORUS
we’re tough on love and we’re tough on the causes of lovers
we’re tough on love and we’re tough on the causes of lovers
cos everything changes and friends turn to strangers, it’s true
we’re tough on the causes of love…

toe the party line, toe the party line...
