If This Is What Love Is


Lyrics & Info

Tabs

Performances (12)

Somewhere between right and wrong is a love song 
Its tongue hits the target, but its phone number is always wrong 
It speaks through calluses of gentler things 
It speaks of kindness 
But I don't think you know what that word means 
Your love is a bitter seed that only the blind can see 
If this is what love is 
Then I guess there's no love song left in me

Somewhere between right and wrong is reality 
Justice and shame speak foolishly of impractical things 
Your kisses are as kind as candles 
Your hands are as giving as stone 
Your mind as kind as Hitler's until night leaves you feeling alone 
Your love is something that must do but never be 
If this is what love is 
Then I guess there's no love song left in me

I didn't mean to fall into darkness 
I just trip in the light 
Cause oh man it's hard to see that clearly and not put up a fight 
I knew then I would break and not bend 
Just look at this trouble I'm in 
I need to realize 
This is how the unhappy half dies

Somewhere between good and bad is every lie I've ever been told 
And it all comes down your good deeds don't count it's what cards you hold 
Well I'm tired of your grey laughter 
I"m tired of your hungry eyes 
This love is so rotten it's starting to attract the flies 
Your love is a bitter seed that only the blind can see 
Its blade is made of jealousy and insecurity 
Your love is something that must do but never be 
If this is what love is 
If this is what love is 
Then I guess there's no love song left in me
