lyrics

We talk,
We talk in pairs,
We stand and stare and every now and then,
We think “it’s love.”

This is different, it’s love.

We try to listen,
Not to project,
But at our best we’re still just second to the truth,

This feels like it’s love.

Well, don’t put words in my mouth,
But I put words in your mouth,
And we converse in thin air,
And fall in love where we can’t.

Every love song, every love song was wrong.

Can I ask you,
To love me all the ways I need to be loved,
And love you just the same?
These scales mustn’t tip.

We start to care,
Though love’s aware of all its little problems,
There’s darkness in our laughter,

God bless the humor that’s intact.

Well, we got what we need now,
But needs are ever changing,
So let’s be honest, let’s speak loudly,
When the things we need so badly,
Seem so out of reach,
Let’s talk.

I love you, I love you, I do, There’s nothing to it.
