  • Hotels are made for two night stays
    Checking in and out
    Meeting strangers in the lobby
    Waking up and leaving town
    The next day
    But love ain't

    And whiskey's poured for when you're bored
    And alone on Friday night
    When you want to lose yourself
    And need a place to hide
    From all the pain
    But love ain't

    Love ain't you on a sidewalk in your new dress all alone
    Love ain't you calling me 'cause he ain't picking up his phone
    The way you're talking sounds like he's somebody you should hate
    I may not know what love is girl, but I know what love ain't
    Come over, let me show you what he can't
    'Cause he can only show you what love ain't

    Sad movies are for crying on the couch
    There in the dark
    That sad song it was written
    Just to try and get your heart to break
    But love ain't

    Love ain't you on a sidewalk in your new dress all alone
    Love ain't you calling me 'cause he ain't picking up his phone
    The way you're talking sounds like he's somebody you should hate
    I may not know what love is girl, but I know what love ain't
    Come over, let me show you what he can't
    'Cause he can only show you what love ain't

    (Love ain't) I wonder what he's doing
    (Love ain't) feeling like a fool
    And you can't
    Keep letting him do it to you

    'Cause love ain't you on a sidewalk in your new dress all alone
    Love ain't you calling me 'cause he ain't picking up his phone
    The way you're talking sounds like he's somebody you should hate
    I may not know what love is girl, but I know what love ain't
    I may not know what love is girl, but I know what love ain't
    Come over, let me show you what he can't
    'Cause he can only show you what love ain't
    Love ain't (Love ain't) yeah yeah
