Anything But Love Lyrics

You put your love upon me
Though I was but poor
We lived a twisted little fairy story
Up on the 5th Floor

I said you can have my love for a song all right
But don't hold it up to the light
Oh loveless
My loveless love

I can't give you anything but love
(Love for loves own sake)
It's like a message from above
(All the love we make)
Watch out for those foreign girls
(They never seem to make much sense)
Mistake my plastic beads for pearls
(We'll leave all life's pretence)

Don't you walk down lonely streets
Under darkened skies
Come on up with me to my lonely retreat
I will sing you lullabies
We string it up and string it along
And listen to those old time songs
And make believe that they were written for you and me

I can't give you anything but love
(Love for loves own sake)
It came like a message from above
(All the love we make)
Watch out for those foreign girls
(They never seem to make much sense)
Mistake my plastic beads for pearls
(We'll leave all life's pretence)

If you still love me
By morning
Oh you'll find me waiting in the garden
By the cherry blossom tree
Bring tin cups of wine and cigarettes
Come to me in pirouettes
My darling
Save all your love for me

I can't give you anything but love
(Love for loves own sake)
It came like a message from above
(All the love we make)
You watch out for those modern girls
(Who never seem to make much sense)
Mistake my plastic beads for pearls
(In a world of innocence)

I will sing you lullabies in all your dreams
(If you tell me that you will)
I've seen those dirty magazines
(And I got my cheap thrills)

I can't give you anything but love
Was that that sweet old song
That you sung when I held you in my arms
I can give you anything but love

I can't give you anything but love
