Derek Webb – I Love/Hate You lyrics

Baby when I put my hands on you
I feel like I'm touching the earth
I'm breaking ground and the soil is wet,
Slipping through my hands

Baby when I put my eyes on you
I follow the curves of the moon
The oceans rise and come crashing down
Onto the shore

But your love is a noose around my neck
I give up and I know I will regret it
Your love is a weight around my legs
But I don't know who I am unless you're holding me

Baby when I listen to your words
They whisper to me like the wind
But they're strong enough to blow me down
And destroy my house


Baby when listen to your words
Baby when I put my eyes on you
Baby when I put my hands on you
I love/hate you
