King of Spades, Queen of Hearts

Prowling cold each day
Till you walk his way
Find how much you love
Life, which he can't think of

Come down, come a little more
Back lot, back behind the store
Shot locked, just like before
Another one hitting the floor

Don't plead, don't waste your breath
He's all you have left
Wrong step, wrong place or time
Slit throat, blood on the line

He's only working
This is just working
He's only working

And in the same way
She will wait till paid
She can hold your hand
Or make you a real man

Back lot, just as before
Her knees drop to the floor
Unzip, no guilt in mind
Paid love, that is the crime

Look on up from above
Her mouth filling with love
More time, consider the price
You'll pay her naughty or nice

She's only working
This is just working
She's only working

"A man has been following me"
She thinks it's her boss you see
Different man, different line of work
Misjudgment: the part that hurts

Shot locked, just like before
She rises up off the floor
Back lot, wrong place or time
Assassination the crime

Don't plead, don't waste your breath
She steps off to his left
She's not whose gonna die
She walks home thru streetlights

You're left alone with him
It's nearing half past ten
You say he's got it all wrong
He says you've lived too long

This is just working
They're only working
