Your accountant called this morning
There was spring time in his heart
He couldn't wait to tell me how he pulled our lives apart
And the letter from your lawyer lies unopened on the tray
I may get around to reading it later today

Walking round the lonely rooms
I see everything the same
But suddenly it matters what was purchased in my name
Whether this or that is paid
Belongs to me or you
Can seven years together be divided by two

It says something for the legal boys
But nothing much for us
That all we had together is so quickly ended thus
The legal boys have won again
And you and I have lost
They can't tell us how it happened
But they'll let us know the cost
But they'll let us know the cost, oh yeah

There's a lot I'd like to tell you
But i can't get past their gaurds
I do not speak their language
And they hold all the cards
I would rather call you darling that defendant in the case
But lovers left her long ago and clients took their place

It says something for the legal boys
But nothing much for us
That all we had together is so quickly ended thus

(instrumental)

The legal boys have won again
And you and I have lost
They can't tell us how it happened
But they'll let us know the cost
But they'll let us know the cost oh yeah
