Watered Down Love

Love that's pure hopes all things,

Believes all things, won't pull no strings,

Won't sneak up into your room, tall, dark and handsome,

Capture your heart and hold it for ransom.

.

You don't want a love that's pure

You wanna drown love

You want a watered-down love

.

Love that's pure, it don't make no claims,

Intercedes for you 'stead of casting you blame,

Will not deceive you or lead you to transgression,

Won't write it up and make you sign a false confession.

.

You don't want a love that's pure

You wanna drown love

You want a watered-down love

.

Love that's pure won't lead you astray,

Won't hold you back, won't mess up your day,

Won't pervert you, corrupt you with stupid wishes,

It don't make you envious, it don't make you suspicious.

.

You don't want a love that's pure

You wanna drown love

You want a watered-down love

.

Love that's pure ain't no accident,

Always on time, is always content,

An eternal flame, quietly burning,

Never needs to be proud, restlessly yearning.

.

You don't want a love that's pure

You wanna drown love

You want a watered-down love

.
