lyrics

Anything but love
by Joel Knopf

I’ve been friends with many people
who’ve been less than friends to me
I’ve tried to fix it
and ended angry
And it’s taken lots of hurt
before I’m hurt enough to see

There’s no life
in cutting off the breath
There’s no pride
in denying what I’m worth
There’s no time
for silencing the voice
that’s saying hold me, hold me
‘cuz if I leave I’m leaving dancing
There’s no space for anything but love

When people drift away
I try to pull’em back
I wish that they would do the same for me
I know that I am still learning how to ask
for the touch that feeds me, feeds me

There’s no life
in cutting off the breath
There’s no pride
in denying what I’m worth
There’s no time
for silencing the voice
that’s saying hold me, hold me
‘cuz if I leave I’m leaving dancing
There’s no space for anything…

There is life
in taking a deep breath
There is pride
in saying what I’m worth
There is time
to listen to that voice
that’s saying hold me, hold me
‘cuz I am here and I am dancing
There is space for everything….everything is love.
