It’s Only A Love Song

It’s Only A Love Song

What should I write now?
More sweet nothings
Things would be better
If the river was running
She said ‘write me a love song’
‘A cheap trick, but what the hell’
I left the room laughing
She called out ‘it’s a shame that you’re so shallow’

But there are bigger questions
You and me just fell into each other’s charms
Like magnetism
How does the world keep rolling around?

It’s Only A Love Song

You give me just enough love
Never too little, never too much
You’re the girl of someone else’s dreams
But you’re manifest and real to me
We’re both so far from home
We’ll forever be on the run
We traded in all friendships
Just for this one
A band of two
A synth duo group
You monopolise me, and me you
And the highs are high
The lows are low
This the stuff that only our hearts know

We share a light in the heat of the night
We share a light and it’s a vital light
We share a light when there’s no other light
We share a light, all night every night
