Until They Don't Love You

Album: Love Somebody (2015)
  • Ain't one the loneliest number
    It takes two to make it right
    Just three little words I shoulda told ya
    Before you left last night

    Sometimes you don't love somebody until they don't love you
    Sometimes you don't love somebody until they don't love you
    Oh you're lookin' so good with your bags packed
    On the front steps waitin' on a yellow cab
    And my heart keeps screaming 'come back, come back, come back

    Well I was a-okay taking you for granted
    Shoulda make a beeline for your door
    If you could see all the broken pieces
    You would redeem my heart for sure

    Sometimes you don't love somebody until they don't love you
    Sometimes you don't love somebody until they don't love you
    Oh you're lookin' so good with your bags packed
    On the front steps waitin' on a yellow cab
    And my heart keeps screaming 'come back, come back, come back

    Don't pay attention to your heart until it's bleeding
    Don't know what you have until you can't keep it
    Don't know what you want till you need it
    Don't know that it's love until it's leavin'
    Oh, when you left I shoulda come runnin'
    You were right about everything
    I was up to no good and you knew it
    And now I'm down here on my knees

    Sometimes you don't love somebody until they don't love you
    Sometimes you don't love somebody until they don't love you
    Oh you're lookin' so good with your bags packed
    On the front steps waitin' on a yellow cab
    And my heart keeps screaming 'come back, come back, come back

    It's a little too late baby I know
    That I treated your heart like a yoyo
    Give me one more chance baby don't go, don't go, don't go
