Back to Bottle It Up lyrics

Bottle It Up

I do it for love, love, love, love
I do it for love, love, love, love

There'll be girls across the nation that'll eat this up
Babe, I know that it's your soul but could you bottle it up?
And get down to the heart of it, no, it's my heart
You're straight out of your luck don't make me tell you again
My love love love love, love love love love

I am aiming to be somebody, this somebody trusts
With her delicate soul, I don't claim to know much
Except soon as you start to make room for the parts
That aren't you, it gets harder to bloom in a garden
Of love, love love love, love love love love

Only thing I ever could need
Only one good thing worth trying to be

And it's love, love, love, love
I do it for love, love, love, love

We can understand the sentiment you're saying to us
Oh, but sensible sells, could you kindly shut up?
And get started at keeping your part of the bargain
Aw please, little darling, you're killing me sweetly
With love, love love love, love love love love

Only thing I ever could need
Only one good thing worth trying to be

And it's love, love, love, love
I do it for love, love, love, love

Started as a flicker, meant to be a flame
Skin has gotten thicker but it burns the same
Still a baby in a cradle, got to take my first fall
Baby's getting next to nowhere with the back against the wall

Meant to make me happy, make me sad
Wanna make it better, better so bad
But save your resolutions for your never New Year
There is only one solution I can see here

Love, you're all I ever could need
Only one good thing worth trying to be

And it's love, love, love, love
(Only gonna get, get what you give away)
(So give love, love)
I do it for love, love, love, love
(Only gonna get, get what you give away)
(Love)

Only gonna get, get what you give away
(So give love, love)
Love, love, love, love
(Only gonna get, get what you give away)
(Love)
