Love Song

  • All I learned growing up
    Was that love chewed me up
    Spit me out on the pavement
    Next to the cuts and the blood
    That my mum and dad would
    Always take out on each other
    Only thing that I knew
    That a love could lead me to
    Was protecting my sisters
    From all the cuts and the blood
    That my mum and dad would
    Always take out on each other

    Sweetheart, you are
    Changing my mind
    Sweetheart, you are
    Changing my mind

    Nobody taught me how to love myself
    So how can I love somebody else?
    There ain't no excuses
    I swear that I'm doing my best
    Nobody taught me how to love myself
    So how can I love somebody else?
    I'm so new to this
    I swear that I'm doing my best

    I won't let you down
    I won't let you down

    Standing there, you look at me
    Understanding everything
    Yeah, it's so fascinating
    You patch up the blood and the cuts
    But our blood got mixed up
    So I guess we belong to each other

    Sweetheart, you are
    Changing my mind
    Sweetheart, you are
    Changing my mind

    Nobody taught me how to love myself
    So how can I love somebody else?
    There ain't no excuses
    I swear that I'm doing my best
    Nobody taught me how to love myself
    So how can I love somebody else?
    I'm so new to this
    I swear that I'm doing my best

    They will try to pay for me
    To erase all the memories
    But I can't
    But you shine so bright
    In a spotless mind
    Someone gets left behind, oh

    Nobody taught me how to love myself
    So how can I love somebody else?
    There ain't no excuses
    I swear that I'm doing my best
    Nobody taught me how to love myself
    So how can I love somebody else?
    I'm so new to this
    I swear that I'm doing my best

    I won't let you down
    I won't let you down
    I won't let you down
    I won't let you down
