Don't Believe in Love

  • I wanna go to bed
    With arms around me
    But wake up on my own
    Pretend
    That I'm still sleeping
    Until you go home

    Oh,
    I can't look at you
    This morning
    I should probably have a sign
    That says
    Leave right now or quicker
    You've overstayed your time

    If I don't believe in love
    Nothing will last for me
    If I don't believe in love
    Nothing is safe for me
    When I don't believe in love
    You're too close to me
    And that's why
    You have to leave

    Maybe I slept peaceful
    On your shoulder
    Your arm warm around my side
    But it's different now
    It's morning
    And I can't face your smile

    The second that I feel
    Your safe hands
    Reaching out for mine
    I slip away and out of sight
    You've over stayed your time

    If I don't believe in love
    Nothing is good for me
    If I don't believe in love
    Nothing will last for me
    If I don't believe in love
    Nothing is new for me
    Nothing is warm for me
    And nothing is real for me

    If I don't believe in love
    Nothing is good for me
    If I don't believe in love
    Nothing will last for me
    When I don't believe in love
    Nothing is new for me
    Nothing is warm for me
    And nothing is real for me

    If I don't believe in love
    Why do you care for me?
    When I don't believe in love
    Nothing is real for me
    If I don't believe in love
    You're getting too close to me
    And that's why you have to leave
    And that's why you have to leave

    If I don't believe in love
    If I don't believe in love
    If I don't believe in love
    Nothing is left for me
    If I don't believe in love
    You're too good for me.Writer/s: JON BRION, ROLLO ARMSTRONG, DIDO ARMSTRONG
