A piano based song, but there is a guitar solo so I tabbed it.  It's
from the   Deceptive Bends  album circa 1977.

Lyrics:


Too many broken hearts have fallen down the river
Too many lonely souls have drifted out to sea
You lay your bets and then you pay the price
The things we do for love ( the things we do for love )

Communication is the problem to the answer
You've got her number and your hand is on the phone
The weathers turned and all the lines are down
The things we do for love ( the things we do for love )

Like walking in the rain and snow
When there's nowhere to go
And you're feeling like a part of you is dying
And you're looking for the answer in her eyes
You think you wanna break up
Then she says she wants to make up

Ooh, you make me love you
Ooh, you've got a way
Ooh, you've had me crawling up the wall

( guitar solo... )

Like walking in the rain and snow
When there's nowhere to go
And you're feeling like a part of you is dying
And you're looking for the answer in her eyes
You think you wanna break up
Then she says she wants to make up

Ooh, you make me love you
Ooh, you've got a way
Ooh, you've had me crawling up the wall

A compromise would surely help the situation
Agree to disagree, but disagree to part
Well after all its just a compromise
For the things we do for love ( the things we do for love )
The things we do for love ( the things we do for love )
The things we do for love ( the things we do for love )
