IT WASN'T LOVE

1.
She could sense that is was morning, as she opened up her eyes,
And for a moment it eluded her, who she was lying there beside.
There were two strong arms around her, she'd forgot how nice that was.
It wasn't bad, but it wasn't love.
So she gathered her belongings, and quietly slipped out the door,
It was a well rehearsed procedure, that she had been through times before.
And in the cold, grey light of morning, she headed on back home.
To the same place she had run from, when she couldn't stand being alone.

CHORUS:
And she cursed herself for doing that again,
She hadn't wanted another lover, all she'd needed was a friend.
But sometimes just when you need them, friends aren't around.
So she picked one man's spirits up, but let herself down.

2.
She felt bad for the man she'd been with, he'd always been pretty good to her.
But there was just no future in it, of that much she was sure.
There was an emptiness inside her, she couldn't seem to rise above,
It wasn't bad, but it wasn't' love.
So she closed her eyes and let her mind, slip back through the years,
To a time when she'd been happy, to a time when he'd been here
She'd only given her heart out once, and it had never been returned.
And for all she'd done to move ahead that pain inside still burned.

CHORUS:
And she cursed herself for feeling that again,
She hadn't wanted another lover, all she'd needed was a friend.
But sometimes just when you need them, friends aren't around.
So she picked one man's spirits up, but let herself down.
REFRAIN;
There were days she really hated him, for leaving her this way
And there were days that she'd give anything, if only he could have stayed,
And she wondered if her heart could find the courage to try again.
Was the happiness love offered ever worth risking this pain.
CHORUS:
And she cursed herself for thinking that again,
She hadn't wanted another lover, all she'd needed was a friend.
But sometimes just when you need them, friends aren't around.
So she picked one man's spirits up, but let herself down.
She picked one man's spirits up, and let herself down.
