Head underwater
And they tell me
To breathe easy for a while
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 on to

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, today, yeah

I learned the hard way
That they all say
Things you want to 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

Convince me to please you
Make 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 alove 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 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'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
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
Or 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
