  • The have been many sightings
    Of love in truth
    The skeptic in me longs for
    To see of love some proof
    Only for you does this happen
    Only for you do I care

    Love is not real
    Love is a hoax
    It's just a dream
    I've had so many nights alone
    Love is not here
    Love is somewhere else
    It's somewhere far
    No man I've ever known's
    Come close

    It can be vicious, heartless,
    Dire and cruel
    In spite of my mind, my heart longs
    To find fire and fuel
    Only for you does this happen
    Only for you do I care

    Love is not real
    Love is a hoax
    It's just a dream
    I've had so many nights alone
    Love is not here
    Love is somewhere else
    It's somewhere far
    No man I've ever known's
    Come close

    My girlfriend doesn't want
    To know me
    And my friends think
    I've lost the plot
    I have become a liability
    I got to do something
    But I don't know what
    I'm hearing voices
    And I can't see straight
    I think I might be going insane
    Can't make my own decisions
    And I just can't wait
    To mess it all up again
    I never thought that I would succeed
    Beyond the wildest dreams
    I've ever dreamt
    But everything's become so hackneyed
    Familiarity only breeds contempt
    I'm ruining your life
    I'm bored with mine
    I'm acting like I couldn't care less
    Another bottle and another line
    Another stranger to undress

    Next time you stab me in the back
    You'd better do it to my face
    Next time you stab me in the back
    You'd better do it to my face
    Next time you stab me in the back
    You'd better do it to my face
    Next time you stab me in the back
    You'd better do it to my face

    When you forget
    What you cannot forgive
    The terms are so much easier to come to with
    When we look at what
    We're going through
    And desaturate
    Until everything is simple
    Love or hate
    Love or hate

    I have been searching
    I have been searching my soul
    I've seen the brightest star
    I've seen the blackest hole
    I've found a way to cope with every twist of fate
    Now everything is simple
    Love or hate
    Love or hate
    Next time you stab me in the back
    You'd better do it to my face

    And when that love comes crawling back to me to say
    I've been away
    Now please let me stay with the
    No way!
    Never again will I do this
    Never again will I care

    Love is not real
    Love is a hoax
    It's just a dream
    I've had so many nights alone
    Love is not here
    Love is somewhere else
    It's just a dream
    I've had so many nights alone

    Love is not real
    Love is a hoax
    It's just a dream
    I've had so many nights alone
    Love is not here
    Love is somewhere else
    It's somewhere far away
    No man I've ever known's come so close Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
