Jonathan Richman – True Love Is Not Nice lyrics

Well, it hurts from the bottom
and it hurts down to your soul
that's because true love is not nice.
And it brings up hurt from when
you were five years old
that's because true love is nice.

Oh, pain, pain, pain,
ain't that just love's name,
love can bring up hurt
from way down low.
It now be unforsized,
true love is just not civilized.
True love is not nice,
no, no.

Well, you've been hurt before,
but now you're hurt and sore.
True love is not nice.
And if it's real love then
that hurt won't go, well,
true love is not nice.

Oh, pain, pain, pain,
rain, rain, rain,
that's why you felt loves
arrow and said, oh,
Well, you knew from your first flirt,
that love was here to hurt.
True love is not nice,
no, no.
