It's a question of lust It's a question of trust It's a question of not letting What we've built up Crumble to dust It is all of these things and more That keep us together Kiss [A]me goodbye When I'm [B]on my own But [A]you know that I'd Rather be [B]home It's a question of [A]lust It's a question of [B]trust It's a question of [G#m]not letting What we've [C#m]built up Crumble to [A]dust It is all [G]of these [C]things and [Am]more That [Em]keep us together[B] It's a question of [A]lust It's a question of trust It's a question of not letting What we've built up Crumble to dust It is all of these things and more That keep us together
