Love Song

Lyrics

playHead under water
playAnd they tell me to breathe easy for a while
playBreathing gets harder,
playEven I know that
playMade room for me
playIt's too soon to see
playIf I'm happy in your hands
playI'm unusually hard to hold on to

playblank stares at blank pages
playNo easy way to say this
playYou mean well,
playbut you make this hard on me

playI'm not gonna write you a love song
play'Cause you asked for it
play'Cause you need one, you see
playI'm not gonna write you a love song
play'Cause you tell me it's make or break in this
playIf you're on your way
playI'm not gonna write you to stay
playIf all you have is leaving
playI'mma need a better reason
playTo write you a love song today, today

playI learned the hard way
playThat they all say things you wanna hear
playMy heavy heart sinks deep down under you
playand your twisted words,
playYour help just hurts
playYou are not what I thought you were
playHello to high and dry

playConvinced me to please you
playMade me think that I need this too
playI'm trying to let you hear me as I am

playI'm not gonna write you a love song
play'Cause you asked for it
play'Cause you need one, you see
playI'm not gonna write you a love song
play'Cause you tell me it's make or break in this
playIf you're on your way
playI'm not gonna write you to stay
playIf all you have is leaving
playI'mma need a better reason
playTo write you a love song today

playPromise me, you'll leave the light on
playTo help me see daylight my guide gone
play'Cause I believe there's a way you can love me
playBecause I say

playI won't write you a love song
play'Cause you asked for it
play'Cause you need one, you see
playI'm not gonna write you a love song
play'Cause you tell me it's make or break in this

playIs that why you wanted a love song?
play'Cause you asked for it
play'Cause you need one, you see
playI'm not gonna write you a love song
play'Cause you tell me it's make or break in this
playIf you're on your way
playI'm not gonna write you to stay
playIf your heart is nowhere in it
playI don't want it for a minute
playBabe, I'll walk the seven seas
playWhen I believe that there's a reason
playTo write you a love song today, today

In a 2008 interview with MTV, Bareilles explained that her record label had been pushing her to write more material, and she was having a tough time writing something they were satisfied with.

Her record label wanted her to write a love song. Because they asked for it, because they needed one. It was basically a big "F you"

Would @SaraBareilles be as popular today if she wrote him a love song because he asked for it? Because he needed one?”

it was never about a he.
