John Moreland - Love Is Not An Answer lyrics

There’s a truth I need to trust But I can’t remember how It’s stuck there in the stillness But the noise is too damn loud And I thought I was an actor I’d let my colors show But what if I’m just a ba*tard Laying low inside your radio Won’t you help me make a fist And choke the poison back We’ll close our eyes each godforsaken time The world gets painted black And we’ll wonder where it comes from How the pain cuts through the pride When the tools we use to fix ourselves Are just the fools we stood beside But love is not an answer I don’t need an answer, I need you Devotion strong but tender Devotion dark and cold Devotion like an anchor Swinging from my soul I used to weigh the distance I used to miss my cues I used to say ‘I love you’ Then wonder who I’m talking to So bring my all your questions Bring me all your doubts Don’t let me meet the devil That I sang those songs about Cause the hounds of youth are howling And you’re all I’ve got to trust With heaven’s lonely ghetto Up there crying down on us
