Ain't No Cure For Love

Album: Famous Blue Raincoat (1986)
  • Warnes version
    --------------
    There ain't no cure for love
    There ain't no cure for love
    No pill no drug
    It's all been cut with stuff
    I can't get nothin' done
    Can't be with anyone
    I don't want your brother love
    I want that other love
    Ain't no cure for love

    I don't expect a medal
    Just because the scene got rough
    And I see you've been so careful to forget how good it was
    I'm never givin' in
    Oh I'm never givin' up babe
    There ain't no cure
    Oh there ain't no cure for love
    There ain't no cure for love
    Ain't no cure for love

    No pill no drug (no, no)
    There's nothin' pure enough
    I can't get nothin' done (no, no)
    I can't be with anyone
    There ain't no cure
    There ain't no cure for love.

    Cohen version
    --------------
    I loved you for a long, long time
    I know this love is real
    It don't matter how it all went wrong
    That don't change the way I feel
    And I can't believe that time's
    Gonna heal this wound I'm speaking of
    There ain't no cure,
    There ain't no cure,
    There ain't no cure for love

    I'm aching for you baby
    I can't pretend I'm not
    I need to see you naked
    In your body and your thought
    I've got you like a habit
    And I'll never get enough
    There ain't no cure,
    There ain't no cure,
    There ain't no cure for love

    There ain't no cure for love
    There ain't no cure for love
    All the rocket ships are climbing through the sky
    The holy books are open wide
    The doctors working day and night
    But they'll never ever find that cure for love
    There ain't no drink no drug
    (Ah tell them, angels)
    There's nothing pure enough to be a cure for love

    I see you in the subway and I see you on the bus
    I see you lying down with me, I see you waking up
    I see your hand, I see your hair
    Your bracelets and your brush
    And I call to you, I call to you
    But I don't call soft enough
    There ain't no cure,
    There ain't no cure,
    There ain't no cure for love

    I walked into this empty church I had no place else to go
    When the sweetest voice I ever heard, whispered to my soul
    I don't need to be forgiven for loving you so much
    It's written in the scriptures
    It's written there in blood
    I even heard the angels declare it from above
    There ain't no cure,
    There ain't no cure,
    There ain't no cure for love

    There ain't no cure for love
    There ain't no cure for love
    All the rocket ships are climbing through the sky
    The holy books are open wide
    The doctors working day and night
    But they'll never ever find that cure,
    That cure for love
