A Week In Music - #7 "Only Love" by Anthony Green

Today is my last day to post for my "A Week In Music," and I'm sad.  I love sharing my love of music.  (Even though no one except Leslie ever comments. Thanks, Leslie!)  Maybe I'll do it again another time.  For now, I'll go back to my "Sunday Downloads."

Today "Only Love" by Anthony Green.  The lyrics of this song are along the lines of "He's Not That Into You."  It's the painful realization that we've all been through. That the relationship you thought you had was all in your head.  I think the line of the song that nails that home is "We need no proper ending. That would mean this meant something."  Ouch.  Truth is painful.

BTW, the photo featured in the video is the cover of his album.  I love it.



Lyrics "Only Love" by Anthony Green

Please keep your distance from me,
I know it's hard to believe
I never wanted to be your only love.
I know the sting of plight hurts,
it only makes matters worse
I never said I would be your only love.

Old ships, battle scars, silhouettes of skeletons
A new sun once the clouds are gone,
These are things that I am not.
Old news heaven sent if heaven wasn't what it is
If all the stars fell from the storm
Then this is what I've become.

I need a new relief
Dressed as a new belief and then
I can try to be anything
or anyone other than who I was
We never hear the dawn,
it wake your roommate up
So I’m between the sheets
wishing for anyone other than us.

Please keep your distance from me,
I know it's hard to believe
I never wanted to be your only love.
I know the sting of plight hurts,
it only makes matters worse
I never said I would be your only love.

Long walks, phones that die, summer in the dead of night
Some would say I had to go,
And these are things we never was.
Long cries no response, silhouettes from all my bones
Still we get our heads on wrong,
Cause these are things we never was.

I need a new relief
Disguised as new belief and then
I can try to be anything or anyone
other than who I was
And I will let you sing
between your mother's sheets
And I will slip through the crack
of the records that stack your bedroom wall
Ooooh

Please keep your distance from me,
I know it's hard to believe
I never wanted to be your only love
I know the sting of plight hurts,
it only makes matters worse
I never said I would be your only love

(We need no proper ending. That would mean this meant something)

Please keep your distance from me,
I know it's hard to believe
I never wanted to be your only love
I know the sting of plight hurts,
it only makes matters worse
I never said I would be your only love

We need no proper ending. That would mean this meant something [x4]
