I’ll give ANYTHING BUT LOVE to you
No painted stars above or neon moon
But I’ll give you time to feel
For your broken heart to heal
From the men who gave you ANYTHING BUT LOVE

ANYTHING BUT LOVE implores
I not offer you my coat or open doors
So don’t ask for love from me
It’s impossible, you see
For how can I give you what’s already yours?

So it’s ANYTHING BUT LOVE tonight
No flat champagne or unexpected fight
I’ve no candy, cards or ring,
Trinkets for delivering
One more empty heart, with ANYTHING BUT LOVE!

Everything Plus Love is here!
If you close your eyes it won’t just disappear!
And whatever life may bring,
Freezing Winter to warm Spring,
I will never give you ANYTHING BUT LOVE!
And whatever life may bring,
Freezing Winter to warm Spring,
I will never give you ANYTHING BUT LOVE!
