lyrics

Oh, oo…
You didn’t have to try, didn’t have to try for love.
Oh, oo…
You didn’t have to try, didn’t have to try for love.

It didn’t have to go that route,
The door was there, you took the out.
And even if you noticed a change,
It was not enough.

I learned something on the way.
Promises can fall like rain.
Eventually you drown in your pain,
Gotta wait til the morning, it comes.

I know it’s not an honest age,
Living like we’re on a stage.
Hard to look you straight in the eye.
When we stand on indifferent lies.

Oh, oo…
You didn’t have to try, didn’t have to try for love.
Oh, oo…
You didn’t have to try, didn’t have to try for love.

So everything is not okay,
But why pretend it’s not that way.
Another line, another dark day,
Can’t even force a smile.

It isn’t all the things you say,
It’s how we’ve gotta play this game.
You know it’s gonna be such a shame,
If we both end up back here one day.

Oh, oo…
You didn’t have to try, didn’t have to try for love.
Oh, oo…
You didn’t have to try, didn’t have to try for love.

When the money breaks,
Say you knew it,
Feel it in my bones,
We’ll lose it,
Cause everything is everything, oh.

So put on the brakes,
And stop it,
Turn this thing around,
Don’t drop it,
Cause everything is what you mean.

Oh, oo…
You didn’t have to try, didn’t have to try for love.
Oh, oo…
You didn’t have to try, didn’t have to try for love.
