Love Only Leaves You Lonely Lyrics

by Paloma Faith

They say it gets better
But it's bittersweet
You don't know how it feels
To sleep right where you used to be
And your smell it still lingers
I need to wash my sheets
They're stained with memories
I wonder if you think of me

Pre-chorus :
Forever really don't (don't)
Last too long
Cause all I had to give (give)
Was not enough

Chorus:
Oh love,
Just left me lonely
I ain't got nobody to call my own
Oh, love
Just made my heart ache
Always a mistake
Oh, love only leaves you lonely.

I sleep with the TV on and write the saddest songs
Cigarettes and alcohol
Have become my only escape
I dream of my favourite time(?)
No, I won't have to wait a while
It hurts so much to smile
But even the strongest can break

Pre-chorus :
Forever really don't (don't)
Last too long
Cause all I had to give (give)
Was not enough

Chorus:
Oh love,
Just left me lonely
I ain't got nobody to call my own!
Oh, love
Just made my heart ache
Our way is a mistake
Oh, love only leaves you lonely.

I'm left with nothing but a twisted dream (but a twisted dream)
There must be someone out there who won't abandon me
Cause I give so much, but all they ever do is take

Chorus:
Oh love,
Just left me lonely
I ain't got nobody to call my own!
Oh, love
Just made my heart ache
Always a mistake
Oh, love only leaves you lonely.

Love just left me lonely,
Love just left me lonely
To call my own!
Oh, love just made my heart ache
Always a mistake
Oh, love only leaves you lonely.
