I Hate Love Songs

  • I hate Shakespeare and Gosling and cakes with white frosting
    Two names in a heart-shaped tattoo
    I think cupid is stupid and violets are purple not blue
    I hate catching bouquets, the honeymoon phase
    And letterman jackets don't fit
    Your eyes can't hold stars and you'd die if your heart really skipped

    I hate love songs (I hate love songs)
    Yeah, I really do (I really do)
    I hate love songs (I hate love songs)
    But I love you

    I hate pink hearts with glitter and Valentine's dinner
    And roses just die in a week
    We were drunk when we met so we don't know our anniversary, woops
    Oh and I'm far too vain to kiss in the rain
    The clouds, they aren't numbered to nine
    And you make me feel something but it sure as hell ain't butterflies

    I hate love songs (I hate love songs)
    Yeah, I really do (I really do)
    I hate love songs (I hate love songs)
    But I love you, ooh yeah

    Oh oh
    I really do

    And I'll always love you but I don't have to sing it
    "For worse or for better" don't rhyme
    They say I got the right one so now I should write one
    But I'd rather just show you tonight

    'Cause I hate love songs (I hate love songs)
    Yeah, I really do (I really do)
    I hate love songs (I hate love songs)
    But I love you, yeah

    I hate love songs (I hate love songs)
    The old and the new (I really do)
    I hate love songs
    But I love you Writer/s: Kelsea Nicole Ballerini, Shane L McAnally, Trevor Joseph Rosen
