"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

Sara Bareilles - Love Song

“if your heart is nowhere in it I don’t want it for a minute”


Head under water, and they tell me to breathe easy for a while.
The breathing gets harder. Even I know that.

You made room for me but it’s too soon to see if I’m happy in your hands.
I’m unusually hard to hold on to.

Blank stares at blank pages;
no easy way to say this…
you mean well, but you make this hard on me.

I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘cause you asked for it,
‘cause you need one; you see,
I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘cause you tell me it’s make or breaking this —
if you’re on your way I’m not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving I’m gon’ need a better reason to write you a love song today.

I learned the hard way that they all say things you want to hear.
And my heavy heart sinks deep down under you..
and your twisted words, your help just hurts..
you are not what I thought you were…
hello to high and dry.

Convinced me to please you,
made me think that I need this too..
I’m trying to let you hear me as I am.

I’m not gonna write you a love song ‘cause you asked for it,
‘cause you need one, you see..
I’m not gonna write you a love song ‘cause you tell me it’s make or breaking this.. if you’re on your way, I’m not gonna write you to stay.
If all you have is leaving I’m gon’need a better reason to write you a love song today.

Promise me that you’ll leave the light on..
to help me see with daylight, my guide, gone..
‘cause I believe there’s a way you can love me because I say

I wont write you a love song
‘cause you asked for it, ‘cause you need one, you see,
I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘cause you tell me it’s make or breaking this..
is that why you wanted a love song?
‘cause you asked for it, ‘cause you need one, you see,
I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘cause you tell me it’s make or breaking this;
if you’re on your way, I’m not gonna write you to stay.
If your heart is nowhere in it, I don’t want it for a minute.
Babe, I’ll walk the seven seas when I believe that there’s a reason
to write you a love song today
