You've Got to Pay  The Only Ones

The Only Ones - "You've Got to Pay"
Album: Even Serpents Shine
It's a tragedy that this band's songs aren't tabbed anywhere. They're
brilliant and really not that difficult to work out or play, even for me, a
total amateur. So I've taken on the task of posting some of their songs'
chords for your rockin' pleasure, and hopefully others will take the cue and
work out some more of their songs and more detailed tabs. Please point out
corrections as needed, since they may not be perfect. Long live The Only
"You've Got to Pay"
(Sounds fine along with the recording when played with barre chords or power
 chords. The little riff after the chorus is F#-F#-E-D#-B-C#-C#.)

[B]I had to [E]choose [F#]which one to [B]lose
[B]I couldn't [E]do it for they [F#]each had their [B]use
[B]It was so [E]hard, [F#]tearing a[B]part
[B]Now I know you [E]gotta get it [F#]right at the [B]start
[E]I learnt my [F#]lesson now
[B]I learnt it the hard [E]way
[E]If you wanna [F#]be in love
You've gotta [E]pay and [F#]pay and [B]pay
[B]After the [E]pain that was [F#]suffered in [B]vain
[B]The dark roads we [E]travelled, with [F#]nothing to [B]gain
[B]And though the [E]pleasures, will [F#]always be [B]treasured
[B]It's a shame it [E]came to [F#]such drastic [B]measures
[E]Indecision, [F#]lack of conviction
[B]Slurred diction failing what you're [E]trying to say
[E]If you are a [F#]slave to love
You're gonna [E]pay and [F#]pay and [B]pay
Our flightpath's a [B]gradual de[E]scent, from the [F#]firma[B]ment
I can [B]tell by the [E]tone of the [F#]letters you [B]sent
[B]What was once [E]sacred is [F#]now filled with [B]hatred
How [B]come [E]such love can [F#]be dissi[B]pated?
[E]I've had e[F#]nough of all this [B]poison and de[E]cay
[E]If you wanna come face to [F#]face with love
You've gotta [E]pay and [F#]pay and [B]pay
