I Shouldn’t Love You (But I Do)

I have no idea why I’m listening to love songs again. Now, I’m writing them again. I’m happily single, so I must somehow enjoy living vicariously through these songs. Better to be alone and safe than sorry. LOL. Maybe it’s time to bring romantic music back.

Trust in love they all would say
Still all this time I was afraid this day would come
I believed in every word you said
Now the conversation is done

Nothing left you want to say
I’m forced to find my own way, you said
Every night the light goes out
I lay alone at night in our bed

I used to hold on to you like my mountain
Always wondered how high you would let me climb
before you would let me tumble down the side

I shouldn’t miss you, but I do
I shouldn’t love you, but I do
Because no one else will ever feel like you
I shouldn’t need you, but I do
I shouldn’t want you, but I do
I could try to love someone else,
but then I wouldn’t be true to myself,
because no one else in this world is you

Better to have loved and lost than to never
have loved at all they say
Why did I let myself give in
if I was afraid that it would end up this way?

Maybe you want the thrill of someone new
Someone who can come in and light a new fire in you
I took comfort in the familiar feeling
that I found in your arms
I was always hoping you would never do me any harm

I used to look up to you like you were my mountain
And you were just daring me to climb
I trusted you, then you just let me tumble down the side

I shouldn’t miss you, but I do
I shouldn’t love you, but I do
Because no one else will ever feel like you
I shouldn’t need you, but I do
I shouldn’t want you, but I do
I could try to love someone else,
but then I wouldn’t be true to myself,
because no one else in this world is you

If you love someone let them go they say,
if it is meant to be they will return
I don’t know if I would take you back
Maybe in my pain there is a lesson to be learned
But I still feel so weak so I…

I shouldn’t miss you, but I do
I shouldn’t love you, but I do
Because no one else will ever feel like you
I shouldn’t need you, but I do
I shouldn’t want you, but I do
I could try to love someone else,
but then I wouldn’t be true to myself,
because no one else in this world is you
