It's Not Love

Written By: linda myers

It’s not Love ©2007 Lyrics and Music by Linda Myers; all rights reserved

It’s not Love
It’s not Love
If I were in a lifeboat
And I had to choose
I wouldn’t choose you.
It’s not love
It’s not love

Then why am I
Peelin’ off my clothes;
jumping in…
Who am I trying to save
What am I trying to say?

It’s not Love
It’s not Love
Maybe it’s a brand of love
A deep discount store brand of love
Vs. a locally owned responsible co-op brand…
It’s not love
It’s not love

Then why does this feel so organic and natural?
Why do I want to feel my skin against your earth?

It’s not love
It’s not love
I can’t tell the difference
Between leather and the imitation stuff
I’m not that sophisticated,
Not that educated
It’s not love
It’s not love

Why do I care when all that I know is you
Feel safe and warm and kind, and it feels luxurious to me.

But it’s not love, not it’s not love
It’s a river of denial in waves of white water
Up to my eyes and over my head; I am drowning
In a sea of finally being seen…and I know I can’t save anyone,
Not even me…so thank god, lucky me that it’s not love.
