Lyrics

(Source: im_not_bossy_im_the_boss)

I don't wanna love the way I loved before.
I don't wanna love that way no more.
What have I been writing love songs for?
I don't wanna write them any more.
I don't wanna sing from where I sang before.
I don't wanna sing that way no more.
What have I been singing love songs for?
I don't wanna sing them anymore.
I don't wanna be that girl no more.
I don't wanna cry no more.
I don't wanna die no more.
So cut me down from this here tree.
Cut the rope from off of me.
Set me on the floor.
I'm the only one I should adore.
Oh, take me to church,
I've done so many bad things, it hurts.
Yeah, get me to church.
But not the ones that hurt,
'Cause that ain't the truth.
And that's not what it's for.
Yeah, take me to church.
Oh, take me to church,
I've done so many bad things, it hurts.
Yeah, get me to church.
But not the ones that hurt,
'Cause that ain't the truth.
And that's not what it's worth.
I'm gonna sing songs of loving and forgiving,
Songs of eating and of drinking,
Songs of living,
Songs of calling in the night.
'Cause songs are like a bolt of light,
And love the only love you should invite.
Songs of longings, but fulfilled,
Songs that won't let you sit still,
Songs that mend your broken bones,
And don't leave you me here alone.
So get me down from this here tree.
Cut the rope from off of me.
Set me on the floor.
I'm the only one I should adore.
Oh, take me to church,
I've done so many bad things, it hurts.
Yeah, take me to church.
But not the ones that hurt,
'Cause that ain't the truth.
And that's not what it's worth.
Yeah, take me to church.
Oh, take me to church,
I've done so many bad things, it hurts.
Yeah, get me to church.
But not the ones that hurt,
'Cause that ain't the truth.
And that's not what it's worth.
