Little Love

hey there little love
yeah you took me for a ride
all the way across the country
we were waiting for our love to be realized
but you hardly ever even looked at me
yeah but you gave me no reason to be afraid
but when you finally put your hands on me
oh yeah you know I thought for sure
I thought for sure iíd been saved

so I let you in
oh I let you in
yeah then you took advantage of me
and then I let you down
oh I let you down by telling you
I thought I might be falling into something

oh yeah but you
donít want and you donít need
and you donít wait and you donít love
but you donít know yeah you donít know how I feel
so donít call me and donít write
and donít you dare tell me that you miss me tonight
cause I need someone whoís going to be home when I get there
little love

now you tell me that what I do for a living
yeah well it is actually a turn off for you
cause I am just smiled at and touched
yeah and my fingers
my fingers are far too rough
and then I tell you
"you know honey, love doesnít know distance"
and then you turn around and look at me and say
"yeah but my arms do"

oh yeah but you
donít want and you donít need
and you donít wait and you donít love
but you donít know yeah you donít know how I feel
so donít call me and donít write
and donít you dare tell me that you miss me tonight
cause I need someone whoís going be home when I get there
little love oh my little love

but my stomach hurts
when I hear your name
and so I just keep replaying the film
of the time when you helped me off the stage
and you know that if you think that this is game
well I am not joking
cause my heart she is tiered
she is tiered of being broken

so hey there
little love
yeah you took me
yeah you took me for a ride
little love
you took me for a ride
