Love Ain't For Keeping

Album: Who's Next (1971)
  • Layin' on my back
    In the newly mown grass
    Rain is coming down
    But I know the clouds will pass
    You bring me tea
    Say "the babe's a-sleepin'"
    Lay down beside me
    Love ain't for keeping

    Black ash from the foundry
    Hangs like a hood
    But the air is perfumed
    By the burning firewood
    The seeds are bursting
    The spring is a-seeping
    Lay down my darling
    Love ain't for keeping
    Lay down beside me
    Love ain't for keeping

    Lay down beside me
    Love ain't for keeping
    Lay down my darling
    Love ain't for keeping Writer/s: PETE TOWNSHEND
