New Song of Love

lyrics

How could I let you be so mean?
How could I let you sleep next to me?
How I could I let you say those things?
How could I let you be so mean?

How could I fill a whole house with tears?
How could you close your mouth for years and years and years?

I want to write a new song of Love
I want to be proved wrong and not give up
I want to cut the diamonds from the rough
I want to write a new song of Love

I heard you found a good place to hide
Where you could watch the stars collide
Maybe you learned a new way to move
Maybe I finally told the truth

If I cut my lip with words
I’ll pretend it really doesn’t hurt

I want to write a new song of Love
I want far away to be just far enough
I want to make it through not just make it up
I want to write a new song of Love

And if you hear my voice you’ll know
That I’m letting go

I’m gonna write it all down by hand
I’m going to learn to swim in quicksand
I start to understand from the start
I’m going to write it all down by heart

I’m going to tangle close with fear
I’m going to learn to dance for years and years and years

I’m going to write a new song of Love
I’m going to be proved wrong and not give up
I want to cut the diamonds from the rough
I want to write a new song of Love
