​Love Don't Owe You Anything

This song is by Strays Don't Sleep and appears on the album Strays Don't Sleep (2005) and on the single Love Don't Owe You Anything (2006).

I lost myself for a second there
I don't know how, I don't know where
Turn the key, climb the stairs
To the a smile that said, "Hello, I will", you know I will

It comes to this with skin and bones
So let's pretend we're not alone
I'll do my best to be your home
Now I trust you'll do the same for me, it's just not that easy

'Cause love don't owe you anything
It's foolish if you ever thought it did
I'll lose my faith, I'll wear your ring

The father, son, the holy ghost
It's love and death we fear the most
So board a train we'll raise a toast
To those that know the twins of freedom

You know it's hard to live like lovers do
The worst in me, the worst in you
And the world outside can shatter too
But that can't change the reasons why we first came here

'Cause love don't owe you anything
It's foolish if you ever thought it did
I'll prove my faith, I'll wear your ring

I thought I understood but now I understand
I thought I understood but now I understand
I thought I understood but now I understand
I thought I understood but now I understand
I thought I understood, I thought I understood
I thought I understood and now I understand, understand

'Cause there's glitter on the hills tonight
Sparking blue and throwing light
The traffic crawls behind my eyes
To that place of hope and innocence
