all you get from love is a love song lyrics – carpenters

like sailin’ on a sailin’ ship to nowhere
love took over my heart like an ocean breeze
as seagulls fly i knew that i was losin’
love was washed away with the driftin’ tide

oh it’s a dirty old shame
when all you get from love is a love song
that’s got you layin’ up nights just waitin’
for the music to start
it’s such a dirty old shame when you got to
take the blame for a love song
because the best love songs
are written with a broken heart

and now the tears in my eyes are ever blinding
the future that lies before me i cannot see
although tomorrow i know the sun is rising
lighting up the world for everyone, but not for me

oh it’s a dirty old shame
when all you get from love is a love song
that’s got you layin’ up nights just waitin’
for the music to start
it’s such a dirty old shame when you got to
take the blame for a love song
because the best love songs
are written with a broken heart

look out, look out
the future i cannot see

oh it’s a dirty old shame
when all you get from love is a love song
that’s got you layin’ up nights just waitin’
for the music to start
it’s such a dirty old shame when you got to
take the blame for a love song
because the best love songs
are written with a broken heart

and it’s a dirty old shame
when all you get from love is a love song
that’s got you layin’ up nights just waitin’
for the music to start
it’s such a dirty old shame when you got to
take the blame for a love song
because the best love songs
are written with a broken heart
