It Wasn't Love
It Wasn't Love

Words and Music by Scott Jeffrey
Copyright September 2004

There were no promises to make
There were no words left to be spoken.
And there were no vows for him to break
One by one they'd all been broken.

So it came down to holding on
Or it came down to letting go.
She said, "Love it may be blind
But I see well enough to know."

It wasn't love.
It wasn't love that we had.
It wasn't love
That left me feeling this sad.
And it wasn't love
Out running around.
I don't know what it was
But I left him because
It wasn't love.

She broke down and softly cried.
Taking portraits off the wall.
Twenty years and what remained
Was packed in boxes in the hall.

At night she dreams she'll love again
And it scares her half to death
She gave so much to him
She's afraid there's nothing left.

Only love will heal her heart
And only love will wash it clean
It wasn't love or hate he gave her
It was something in between.

But it wasn't love.
It wasn't love that they had.
It wasn't love
That left her feeling this sad.
It wasn't love out running around
I'm not sure what it was
But it's over because
It wasn't love.
