Love Is Greed Lyrics

by Passion Pit

You want a love, a love for us
You want a selfless love that we can always say we trust
Love has always been a mockery
Of those in love and scared to be in your need

Dont wanna love, dont wanna hurt
If all that loneliness requires just anothers comfort
Better off being all on your own,
There's a beauty in being alone

Today were arguing its not worth making
Another person thats just yours for the taking
All your hoping and praying wont do more than saying that

Love, love, love, love is just greed
Its almost taken me,
But now I can see
Love, love, love, love is just greed
A selfish little need
You follow or you lead
If we really love ourselves, how do you love somebody else?

A love to us, I loved her there
Its just the history repeating itself time and time again
Love is not a veil to hide your voice,
All this talk of love just turns to noise

So you want love, a love so tough
That even all these truths dont seem as though theyre adding up, oh
Havent you already had enough?
Whats this suffering remind you of?

Someday well all agree its not worth making
Another person thats just yours for the taking
All your hoping and praying wont do more than saying that

Love, love, love, love is just greed
Its almost taken me,
But now I can see
Love, love, love, love is just greed
A selfish little need
You follow or you lead
If we really love ourselves, how do you love somebody else?

A love all gone is just another story
Whats gone sour once was glory, glory
It's romance you want, well ask for it then
Honey, could you put your arms around me so?
Tell me things about you that I wouldn't know
And tell me that you love me like you do
And maybe I will too

Love, love, love, love is just greed
Its almost taken me,
But now I can see
Love, love, love, love is just greed
A selfish little need
You follow or you lead
If we really love ourselves, how do you love somebody else?
