Love Song
Sara Bareilles Lyrics


Head underwater
And they tell me
To breathe easy for a while
The breathing gets harder, even I know that
Made room for me it's too soon to see
If I'm happy in your hands
I'm unusually hard to hold onto

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 leavin'
I'ma need a better reason
To write you a love song today
(Yeah) Today, yeah

I learned the hard way
That they all say
Things you wanna hear
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 leavin'
I'ma 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 won't 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
Today, (yeah) yeah

I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you tell me it's make or break in this
If you're on your way
I'm not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving
I'mma need a better reason
To write you a love song today, today

I learned the hard way
That they all say things you wanna 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

I Provide Lyrics

Head under water

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

I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you tell me it's make or break in this
If you're on your way

And my heavy heart sinks deep down under you and your twisted words,

This song actually wasn’t about a guy! The studio execs had demanded that she should write a love song or they’ll fire her. And this is the song she wrote:” I’m not gonna write you a love song ...” Genius 😊

DJdext

None of her statements indicate she was going to fired if she didn't write a love song. They wanted one from her and had her team up with other writers but in the end allowed her the freedom to write whatever.

Now the record execs are rich. She really showed them!

VolkColopatrion

or rather. the people that did sign her knew that this song was HER TERMS.

she says, sure, i'll work for y8ou i'll write you music and we'll have good business together but i'm going to write my songs on my terms. take it or leave it.
