If That Isn't Love

I stayed with you On the line Until you were asleep I prayed for you Every time You felt the darkness creep If that isn't love Would you tell me what is? If that isn't love What more can I give to you? I talked with you Every night I had a moment spare I walked with you Until we reached The outskirts of despair If that isn't love Won't you tell me what is? If that isn't love There's more I can give to you And I want to I want to Let yourself be loved She'll appear to take my place When the moment comes Don't hold back, adore, embrace Let yourself be loved She'll be so much more than me When the moment comes Give yourself entirely I tried so hard And fought so long To be the one you need You waste your time Indulging me I want you to succeed If that isn't love Then it's more than I have If that isn't love You need something more than that And I know that If that isn't love...
I don’t wanna be touched I can tell you all my secrets But please don’t touch me If you wanna know my dreams You can see But I don’t wanna be Touched Maybe ever again I don’t wanna be touched If all you want is information I’ll provide it freely If you need communication I can talk But I don’t wanna be Touched Maybe never again Again Again Again I don’t wanna be known I don’t wanna be pursued All my insides perused And then used up again I don’t wanna go backwards; the mishaps, relapses All my enemies exhumed An uprooting of what’s bloomed And recovered To make room for you as a lover (If it’s all the same to you) Words are never enough You can gimme all your reasons But they still won’t reach me And explain to me at length You’re the exception and you’re worthy Touched A little nerve with you there? You say I’m being unfair But why should I care I don’t care I don’t care (If it’s all the same to you) I don’t think I’ll bother And now you feel you’ve earned your access to my soul You’ve theorised your love can make me whole Oh! No… I’ll only show you a shell Though I’m presenting it well So you’d never tell There’s no alarm bell
