Love Isn't Always Fair
Black Veil Brides Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

One look and I am sold
You've got me on my knees
You steal all my innocence
A love sick melody
Take me

You always want the one that you can't have
'Cause love isn't always fair
You are the best romance I've never had
'Cause love isn't always fair

Your kiss a withered rose
Your lips have buried me
Hearts race the moments gone
We shared this fantasy
Take me

You always want the one that you can't have
'Cause love isn't always fair
You are the best romance I've never had
'Cause love isn't always fair

Kneel and pray for closure baby
This is the ride that we're on, oh
And I'm taking what you give to me
Never want it to stop, I want it all
In this temporary love

You always want the one that you can't have
'Cause love isn't always fair
You are the best romance I've never had
'Cause love isn't always fair

(Whoa oh oh oh




Oh oh oh oh)
Love isn't always fair
