Sara Bareilles 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 unusually hard to hold on to

Blank stares at blank pages

No easy way to say this

You mean well, but you 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 break in 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

I learned the hard way

That they all say things you wanna hear

And 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 break in 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

Promise me, you’ll leave the light on

To help me see with daylight my guide gone

‘Cause I believe there’s a way 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 break in 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 break in this

If you’re on your way

I’m not gonna write you to stay

If your heart is nowhere in it

I don’t want it for a minute

Babe, I’ll walk the seven seas

When I believe that there’s a reason

To write you a love song today, today
