Love Song

Lyrics

play Head under  
play And they tell me to   easy for a while
play Breathing gets   ,
play Even I know  
play Made   for me
play It's too   to see
play If I'm happy in your  
play I'm unusually hard to   on to

play Blank   at blank  
play No easy   to say this
play You   well,
play but you make this   on me

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

play I learned the hard  
play That they all say things you wanna  
play My   heart sinks deep down under you
play and your   words,
play Your help just  
play You are not what I   you were
play Hello to   and dry

play Convinced me to   you
play Made me think that I need this too
play I'm trying to let you hear me as I am

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

play Promise me, you'll leave the   on
play To help me see   my guide gone
play 'Cause I believe there's a way you can   me
play Because I say

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

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