These Things

These Things

Lori Lieberman, Jet D’eau Music, BMI

You say love’s a ball and chain
That brings you down and causes pain
But why do you say these things

You say love won’t set you free
It chokes you like a wild weed
But why do you say these things

Someone must have hurt you bad
Broken you down, taken your soul
Made you so sad long ago
My love has no lock or key
In my arms darlin you’re free
To stay or to leave
I love you so

Did she turn your heart to stone
Is she the one who made you lonely
How could she do these things

Darlin come and hold me close
I’ll never leave you all alone
I know I can change these things
Our love can change these things
