lyrics

When I… I was feeling sad and maudlin
Thinking only of my problems
Looking anywhere for help
Then I thought it might somehow console me
If I had someone to hold me
If I wasn't by myself

Because it sounded so sweet that it couldn't be wrong
When they repeated it in poems and in old pop songs
Well they told me that love would make the world go round
I wish it would've stopped turning on the night when I found it 'cause now
It's the morning after and I still feel down
And that's why I believe

Love… love don't make it better
When it's hard to hold together
When it's all falling apart
No love… love don't make it easy
When your troubles are increasing
It only opens up your heart

And if… if I only have one regret
It's that I always kept it secret
The only thing that I ever meant to say
'Cause I told you often that I love you
And that I'm always thinking of you
But in spite of it all I'm still afraid

You know it sounded so wrong but it had to be right
'Cause they played it on the radio night after night
They told me love would lift me up when I'm feeling down
What if disaster strikes and you're nowhere to be found at all
And it's a long long way for me to fall
So I believe

Love… love don't make it better
When it's hard to hold together
When it's all falling apart
No love… love don't make it easy
When your troubles are increasing
It only opens up your heart

Love… love don't make it better
When it's hard to hold together
When it's all falling apart
No love… won't chase away the woes that hound you
When they're crowding in around you
It only opens up your heart
