Unlove You

Album: Playing With Fire (2015)
  • I could break down and cry
    Laugh it off and deny
    Draw lines in the sand
    And count on both hands
    All the reasons why

    This just won't work
    It'll be nothing but hurt
    I can swear that I don't
    And maybe one day I won't
    But for how hard I've tried

    I can't unlove you
    My heart can't unbreak
    I can't unfeel how it felt
    But feel so much myself
    My whole body ached
    And I can't unknow this
    Lord, I wish I knew how
    But I can't unlove you
    So come love me for now

    If I were twenty-five
    I know just what I'd do
    I would have already kissed
    Till I was drunk on your lips
    A thousand times too few

    But we have other lives
    And we know it ain't right
    This is going nowhere
    If I'm with you I don't care
    Take me nowhere tonight

    They call it fire
    But it feels just like drowning
    Well, the weight of my burning desire
    Closing in all around me
    I wasn't lost until you found me

    And I can't unlove you
    My heart can't unbreak
    I can't unfeel how it felt
    But feel so much myself
    My whole body ached
    And I can't unknow this
    Lord, I wish I knew how
    But I can't unlove you
    So come love me for now

    I can't unlove you
    So come love me for now Writer/s: BRANDY CLARK, JENNIFER NETTLES
