Lyrics

Every day is waking up to find its own salvation
And every day I found salvation in you
But now I know that everything must happen for & reason
And I've been reasoning that everything will be
better when we're through.
I'll tell ya

You can't love me like I loved you
You can't fool me when it ain't true
You can''t love me like I was loving you
No, no, no, no, no
you can't, baby you can't

Oh love, love, love is lack of wisdom
Makes you feel so brave until it knocks you to the ground
But now I've found there's only senselessness,
only senselessness in suffering
And I can't find no sense, can't find no sense,
in keeping you around
Because

You can't love me like I loved you
You can't fool me when it ain't true
You can''t love me like I was loving you
No, no, no, no, no
you can't, baby you can't


All these tears were never meant to be
But we loved without a warranty
And now I'm left to try and understand
How my love was wasted on a broken man, oh

You can't love me like I loved you
You can't fool me when it ain't true
You can''t love me like I was loving you
No, no, no, no,
You can't love me like I loved you
You can't fool me when it ain't true
You can''t love me like I was loving you
No, no, no, no, no
You can't
