Unintended Consequence Of Love
Bonnie Raitt Lyrics


Looks like we've been butting heads again, baby
Lately seems like all we ever do
Can't remember when things got so crazy
All I know is I don't know what to do

I guess we oughta stop and think it over
Decide if what we want there's enough of
It's tearing us apart, it cuts right through the heart
It's an unintended consequence of love
Remember how we fell into each other, baby
Was all we could do to get up out of bed
You used to say nobody loved you better
I used to hang on every word you said

What happened to those brave and tender lovers?
How could we break the mighty promise of?
I guess time wore us down, expectations run aground
It's an unintended consequence of love

Now baby, I'm the one that's taking chances
I know we've got a love worth fighting for
Let's drop them petty games and pick up dancing
Get back to where we're wanting nothing more

I'm calling on you, baby, now or never
Let's dig in deep and get out of this rut
We'll get back to what brought us both together, baby
And find a way to resurrect our strut

'Cause baby, you're my brave and tender lover
I know we'll find the mighty promise of
So come on, baby, back
We'll get this love on track
You're my one intended consequence of love

Oh, consequence of love

I am happy to see this Blues-Legend - LIVE during the Holland-International-Blues-Festival in Grollo. http://hollandinternationalbluesfestival.com/Bonnie-Raitt

I was afraid it would be a disappointment - NOT! Could be a classic!

IMHO, "Dig in Deep" is Bonnie's best album in years: gotta-dance rockers and gorgeous, tender ballads. I've played it almost every day for the past week.

I can relate to this song's lyrics. Part of the human experience I guess. This is my favorite Bonnie Raitt song actually. I probably hear it at least a couple of times a day on the blues station up here where I am.

hard to see those kitschy  museum furnitures in a "modern" house

Lady Yankee Rebel

If I had a voice like this sista....

Great sing , tacky video (digging not deep but for young audience/video-generation)

John Johnson

I sooo love this lady!
