Graham Nash (c) 1994 by Nash Notes, ASCAP


Like a whisper on the wind
Sometimes the wind
Don't want to hear about it
Like a sailboat on the sea
Sometimes the ocean
Just don't care about it
There are many, many feelings
That can tear your soul apart
But the pressure of unequal love is hard
'Cause the price you have to pay
Is that the pain won't go away
Unequal love

Did you ever stay too long
With a lover who was over you
You had the feeling it was wrong
But you loved so hard
There's nothing you could do
There are many, many heartaches
When you're up against the wall
And all the love you give
Won't come back at all
And no matter what you do
It really hurts to know the truth

Love is unequal sometimes

When you have a change of heart
'Cause you've found
That you can trust somebody
They'll tear the arrow from your heart
It's you they'll love
It's not just anybody
There are many, many reasons
Not to play the game at all
But in the meantime
You are bound to fall
'Cause your wounds are gonna heal
You're gonna learn just how to deal
With unequal love

Unequal love
Unequal love
