Lyrics

What is it with you
How come good luck
Only makes you cruel
You get dead-eyed as royalty
And just as blue

But you know I don’t care
I don’t care what you do
I just wanna know
Where you are, what is true

But just because someone loves you
Doesn’t mean you can treat them bad
But just because someone loves you
Doesn’t mean they can be had

Don’t wanna kill your soul
You know that’s not for me
I don’t put my hands over your eyes
You should be able to see

Just because someone loves you
Doesn’t mean you can count them out
Just because someone loves you
Doesn’t mean you can make them doubt

I don’t wanna push you
I don’t wanna stop you
You’re free to come and go I don’t want to keep you
I just want to give you
What little joy I know

Just because someone loves you
Doesn’t mean you must make ’em pay
Just because someone loves you
Doesn’t mean you can throw them away
