Lyrics

VERSE
She has all the creature comforts she could desire
You might even say she has a picture-perfect life
But things and appearances just make her out a liar
He never holds her, but she’s a very faithful wife

VERSE
She dreads waking up to find him still there
One day, he’s sweet; the next, hell to pay
She wants so much to leave, but she doesn’t dare
The one time she tried, it was a very bad day

CHORUS
Some of them live with a heart of ice
For some, every day is a roll of the dice
Some lie to themselves about paradise
Every form of refuge has its price

VERSE
When they’re makin’ love, she’s over the moon
But when he doesn’t come home, she denies
That he’s on the make; he’ll be there soon
It just couldn’t be true; he’s one of the good guys

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
The price of refuge can be mutual and fair
But when it’s not, the price to her can be very, very high

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Yes, every form of refuge has its price
