lyrics

That Ain't Love

He can hear their voices bouncing down the hallway to his bedroom door
And daddy started sleeping on the couch
Cut down to size by his mothers eyes the day that she walked out
He still keeps her picture on the shelf

And that stuff, It ain't love
Though they'll tell you that it is
It's just little children fighting grown up wars
And if you gotta see love to be love
It seems like we're on a sinking ship
But if there ain't love, then what's worth fighting for

She can make excuses for the way he treats her, the way he beats her
He's just like her daddy anyway
And every guy she's know only proves that love's a fantast
Just someone to help you pay the bills

But that stuff, It ain't love
Though they'll tell you that it is
It's just little children fighting grown up wars
And if you gotta see love to be love
It seems like we're on a sinking ship
But if there ain't love, then what's worth fighting for
And that stuff, it ain't love
No matter what you hear
'Cause there's a wound that I know that love was meant to heal
And if you gotta know love to show love
It starts with giving everything
You gotta lose your life if you ever want to live
