Expensive Love - live in my pajamas

Here's a new video I shot while experimenting with my new TC-Helicon VoiceLive Play vocal harmonizer/effects processor:


Expensive Love
There's a drip in the tub that I just can't fix
and I can't find a rug to cover up the skidmarks from where your feet kept losing ground.
You were carving up a tomb from the home I found.
And I could afford the surgery,
and I could absorb the cost of drugs,
but I just needed some sort of guarantee that you'd see me through.

Dear Lu,
loving you is so expensive
loving you is so expensive, darling
loving you is so expensive, baby
I knew you had to go but didn't know it'd be so costly

You got a little bit sicker when you came on tour,
but still you stood right by my until your legs were sore,
and it was hard to leave you out in the van some nights.
Sometimes you gotta do wrong to make a longterm right.

But then you got much worse when I took the job;
I had to leave work late and get up at ungodly hours to get out of all the debts I owed.
Maybe you couldn't see the man for the brand new clothes,
but everything else was much improved:
We ate our weight in brand name foods.
I became the father you never knew

But it was too late

Dear Lu,
loving you is so expensive
loving you is so expensive, darling
loving you is so expensive, Lumey
I knew you had to go but didn't know it'd be so costly


loving you is so expensive, baby
loving you is so expensive, darling
loving you is so expensive, Lumey
I knew you had to go but didn't know how much it'd cost me
