Love Is Never Equal Lyrics

by Jill Sobule

Love is never equal
I learned that early at home
Someone always loves more than the other

And ends will always come
So you might as well have beginnings
Love is never equal after all

Love is never equal
The love between two people
Someone always gets the shorter straw
Love can be so tender
But you always must remember
Love is never equal after all

Last year I had someone
Who worshipped at my feet
He gave me everything I wanted
But he did not interest me

And now I'm standing naked
Like one of those bad dreams
Where everyone has clothes on
'Cept for me

Love is never equal
The love between two people
Someone always gets kicked to the curb
Love can be so tender
But you always must remember
Love is never equal after all

Love is never equal
The love between two people
Someone always gets kicked to the curb
Someone's always left out freezing
Battered down and bleeding
Love is never equal after all
Someone's always cheated
Hoodwinked and mistreated
Love is never equal after all
