a song about love lyrics – charlie mcdonnell

this is a song about love, and not a very good one
i don’t know enough to tell you about heartbreak
but i know it’s there, and you can avoid it
by listening to your head
which is just what i’ve done, and it isn’t perfect
but look what i’ve done instead, instead of falling for you

i’ve never really been in love and that is fine by me
i’ll sit at home and refine the person i want to be
‘cause i’m still young and not prepared to waste my time
on chasing girls who are yet to fully form their minds
and i know that there’s a woman waiting, but she’s not a woman yet
so i’ll wait, and make sure i don’t do something i’ll regret

this isn’t just about love, ’cause that’s just one pixel
of the image i’m speaking of, the one of the relationship
that we share, it’s much more important
that i learn to like you too
though i guess before that, it’s probably vital
that i try to look for you, at least look for me

i’ve never really been in love and that is fine by me
i’ll sit at home and refine the person i want to be
‘cause i’m still young and not prepared to waste my time
on chasing girls who are yet to fully form their minds
and i know that there’s a woman waiting, but she’s not a woman yet
so i’ll wait, and make sure i don’t do something i’ll regret

i could tell you that i love you all you want till i’m dry
but i can’t force myself to love you so why should i even try
i’ll have to wait, and hold my chin up, and plug away at other things
until she comes

and i know that there’s a woman waiting, but she’s not a woman yet
so i’ll wait, and make sure i don’t do something i’ll regret
