Love Song Lyrics

Head under water
And they tell me to breathe easy for a while
The breathing gets harder, even I know that

Made room for me it's too soon to see
If I'm happy in your hands
I'm usually hard to hold on to

Blank stares at blank pages
No easy way to say this
You mean well, but you'd make this hard on me

I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you asked for it
'Cause you need one, you see

I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you tell me it's
Make or breaking this if you're on your way

I'm not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving
I'mma need a better reason to write you a love song today

Today, Yay

I learned the hard way that they all say
Things you wanna hear
My heavy heart sinks deep down under you

And your twisted words, your help just hurts
You are not what I thought you were
Hello to high and dry

Convinced me to please you
Made me think that I need this too
I'm trying to let you hear me as I am

I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you asked for it
'Cause you need one, you see

I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you tell me it's
Make or breaking this if you're on your way

I'm not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving
I'mma need a better reason to write you a love song today

(Ah-Ah) Promise me (Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah)
You'll leave the light on (Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah)
To help me see (Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah)
With daylight my guide gone (Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah)

'Cause I believe there's a way (Ah-Ah-Ah)
You can love me because I say

I won't write you a love song
'Cause you asked for it
'Cause you need one, you see

I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you tell me it's
Make or breaking this

Is that why you wanted a love song?
'Cause you asked for it
'Cause you need one, you see

I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you tell me it's
Make or breaking this if you're on your way

I'm not gonna write you to stay
If your heart is no where in it, I don't want it for a minute, Babe
I'll walk the 7 seas when I believe that there's a reason
To write you a love song today

Today, Eh-Eh, Yeah-Eh-Eh-Eh
