Lyrics

Not a day goes by that a person doesn’t have to chose
Between what he wants, what he’s afraid to lose
Along comes temptation, and he can’t refuse, no
You know the difference between wrong and right
Don’t make no difference in the middle of the night

Take the bait, you pay the price
Much too late, for good advice
You know and I know that our good thing’s through
Because there’s consequences to what we do
Consequences for me and you

There was smokin’ and drinkin’ and thinkin’ when he walked by
The next thing I knew, you were making up an alibi, yeah..
And all you’ve done since then, is lie, lie, lie

Took your chances, had a real good time
Would you give your soul for a little peace of mind

Tell the truth, it’s a big mistake
Homes will crumble and hearts will break
Baby why gamble when there’s so much to lose
Because there’s consequences to what we do
Consequences for me and you

Listen baby, it’s just common sense
Sooner or later we’re gonna suffer the consequences

Tell the truth and pay the price
Got to listen to Mama’s good advice
You know and I know that our good thing’s through
Because there’s consequences to what we do
Consequences for me and you
Consequences for the things that we do
Consequences for me and you

Well
We’re gonna both pay the price baby, Yeah
We’re gonna suffer the consequences
For hot lovin, on the side
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Consequences for me and you
