Love Gets Lost

by little xs for eyes



If you're gonna go
Say you wanna leave
Think we oughta talk about just what we need
I don’t wanna stay
If we’re gonna debate
Are we gonna talk ourselves into a grave

Are we going stale
Are we turning sour
Are we gonna argue for another hour
Lets address this rut
We discuss too much
Rather use my arms and lips to fix us up

Love gets lost
beneath talk
we'll find it
if we kiss

All my words have been heard
All my heart is still yours
No no need to doubt or shout or have a fall out
Coulda woulda stuck
Woulda shoulda shut up
Understood ya better when you didn’t say so much

If you're gonna go
Say you wanna leave
Think we oughta talk about just what we need
Now my heart is open
But my voice is tired
I wish my lips were swollen instead of my eyes
