NOT A LOVE SONG Lyrics
by Summer

I guess when they ask,
That’s what we’ll say
That we did it for love
But we do it anyway

Muted conversation
So you pick up your pen
And you make up a story
Of what you think they meant

All these vacant ideas
Waste too much of my time
Why don’t you bring the reason
And I’ll bring the rhyme?

(Chorus)
It’s not a love song
At least not like you think
And by that,
I don’t mean anything

Everyone has a dream
Everyone has a plan
Of who they wanted to be
Where they wanted to land

Who cares where it comes from?
Even less where it goes
Who am I to argue
With what everyone knows?

(Chorus)
It’s not a love song
Well, not to me
Unless, of course
That’s what you want it to be
It’s not a love song
Not like you’d think
And by that
I don’t mean anything

Faith, hope, and love
Drive some people on
Me, I’ll stay right on this bench
And keep on playing my song

I’ll do it for faith
I’ll do it for hope
I’ll even do it for love
Even if it’s not my own

(Chorus)
It’s not a love song
Well, not to me
Unless, of course
That’s what you want it to be
No, It’s not a love song
Not like you’d think
And by that
I don’t mean anything

So I guess when they ask
That’s what we’ll say
That we did it for love
But (truth is) we do it anyway
