Love’s Song

When I was young
I got it all wrong
I thought, I thought love was a key
I picked the lock
I forgot to knock
I walked it off and baby, I was free

Love’s song lingers
On the lips of other singers
They play it every opportunity
They play Love’s song for you
Yes, and any other fool
But you know that
Love’s song was never in my key

A short time ago
Well, wouldn’t you know
Came the strain of some old melody
Singing soft and low
Sentimental and slow
Now somehow I know Love’s song is singing me

Love’s song lingers
On the lips of other singers
You don’t have to pay ’em, they’ll play ’em all for free
They’ll play Love’s song for you
Any love song will do
But y’know that Love’s song was never in my key

Hey hey hey hey yeah

Love’s song lingers
On the lips of other singers
But Love’s song was never in my key
Just goes to show
How wrong I could be
Now somehow I know Love’s song is singing me
Hey hey yeah
Love’s song lingers
On the lips of other singers
But Love’s song was never in my key

Just goes to show
How wrong I could be
Now somehow I know Love’s song is singing me

Squatting was the first opportunity I had to break out of the cycle of homelessness that, for young women especially, makes your self esteem deteriorate.
