Alkaline Trio – Only Love lyrics

How young are you gonna be when you die?
I guess I never really thought about that.
You're dying when you start thinking like that.
All I know is that time is undefeated so far

Get right with God before it's time.
I hear that the telephone works both ways,
Think you can make a little effort some day?

I gotta awful lot going on with the things that I can see,
And what I see are the reasons that I be,
And the blood I give to her, and her,
That's all there is.

It's only love that keeps us here,
And this food and these dreams they are poison.
And life is good,
So die well with some good distractions.
At the end there is only love.

Separate these lies like there's a truth,
I don't know who the hell told you.
You've probably been lying since you murdered my youth.

I know you're going take what's left, but you'll never see me run.
No, here I am.
Can you see what's in these hands?
It's everything I need to see, to breath, to feel

It's only love that keeps us here,
And this food and these dreams they are poison.
And life is good,
So die well with some good distractions.
At the end there is only love.

I lie awake, don't miss her,
I lay with all that I love,
And all I need on this earth,
Like what's below

It's only love that keeps us here,
And this food and these dreams they are poison.
And life is good,
So die well with some good distractions.
At the end there is only love
