It's Not Love




from the 2006 Del Lowell & the SMITHTONES CD, Ethereal
(4:10) music and lyrics written by Dokken, Lynch, Pilson & Brown
originally recorded by Dokken - Under Lock And Key (1985)



I told you I had to leave
I had my reasons
I said that it hurt to stay
The way that I'm feeling

It's not love that left you standing
It's not love that left you cold
It's not love, misunderstanding
Only a mistake, there's nothing left to take

Why baby why did you make me let you go
And leave you so lonely?
Why baby why did you have to hold on
You know it's not love anymore?

I gave you your last chance
But you didn't believe me
You can't keep me satisfied
The way that you treat me

It's not love that left you standing
It's not love that left you cold
It's not love, misunderstanding
Only a mistake, there's nothing left to take

Why baby why did you make me let you go
And leave you so lonely?
Why baby why?
Stop playing with my heart, I told you

It's not love telling you to be this way
It's not love saying you can never change
It's not love when I told you is he putting you down
Down, down, down

It's not love that left you standing
It's not love that left you cold
It's not love, misunderstanding
Only a mistake, there's nothing left to take

Why baby why did you make me let you go
And leave you so lonely?
Why baby why?
Stop playing with my heart, I told you

It's not love
Why baby why?
It's not love
Why baby why?
It's not love
Why baby why?
It's not love
Why baby why?
