evangeline lyrics – little big town

he won’t lay a finger on you
he won’t wreck your pretty face
but he’ll tell you that you’re worthless
just to put you in your place
well, you don’t to have to be kicked to be bruised, no
you don’t have to be hit to be abused

[chorus:]
evangeline, you’re a hard one
your denial is bolstered by your dreams
thinking love is gonna save you
but it ain’t love if it’s mean, evangeline

and the smile that you’re wearing
is just a lovely veil
for the secrets that you’re hiding
that are just too dark to tell
well, you don’t have to be cut to be scarred, no
and you don’t have to be struck to leave a mark

[chorus]

you don’t have to be kicked to be bruised
you don’t have to be hit to be abused

[chorus]

it ain’t love if it’s mean, evangeline
it ain’t love if it’s mean, evangeline
it ain’t love, evangeline
it ain’t love, evangeline
it ain’t love, evangeline
it ain’t love, evangeline
it ain’t love
it ain’t love, evangeline
