Lyrics

Why You Wanna Keep On Loving Me
[William Livesay ©2016]

You live alone but you say that you're not lonely
And don't need love to keep you company
The act of your seclusion is merely an illusion
That love is something lonely people need
I get a sinking feeling from hooks that leave me reeling
Swallowing all of your lines
I've fallen hard and left a stain
I'll gather up what remains
And put it in a box until you’re ready to play

If love is for the lonely and you're not lonely
Then why you wanna keep on loving me
If what we have to share has got you running scared
Then why you wanna' keep on
Why you wanna' keep on loving me

You heat me up like a 4 alarm fire
When you call me out with love on your mind
The pleasure is superb until you kick me to the curb
I guess companionship is just a waste of time
You say that you miss me, how you can't resist me
Honey c'mon in the water's fine
Then you put up all your fences, deflecting my intentions
I guess I'll buckle up, the pleasure is mine

Hey Hey Hey C’mon open up your heart I'm never gonna break you down
Hey Hey Hey It doesn't matter anyway
What matters is the way we love when I'm around

Wake up and greet the day you're sleeping far too long
And there's really nothing else that I can say
We've seen a lot of years and I know you have your fears
Don't let your damaged goods get in the way
When the new year sings will you to wear my ring
You've got nothing to lose so take a chance
You might show me the door but I know this for sure
We all need love and it's not just for the lonely

If love is for the lonely and you're not lonely
Then why you wanna keep on loving me
If what we have to share has got you running scared
Then why you wanna keep on why you wanna keep on
If love is for the lonely and you're not lonely
Then why you wanna keep on loving me
Was it something that I said or maybe I misread
Then why you wanna keep on why you wanna keep on loving me
