Lori McKenna – Like No One's Ever Hurt You At All lyrics

You tore down that old house
But you left the barn right where it stood.
You said the bones of that building were strong
And the space would do some good.
Well, I was staring one day at the lines
Collecting in the dust on the floor.
I'd almost swear you must've been dancin' out there
But I could never be sure.

[Chorus]
Don't you believe in love?
Don't you believe in love?
It's like you're always waiting for the fall.
Can't you just kiss me once,
Like no one's ever hurt you at all?

Your father is buried
In that graveyard you pass every day.
And you're not much of a praying man
But when you talk to him, I wonder what you say.
He must've figured you'd be married by now
With a couple of kids.
Oh, but you must've figured you'll do nothing
The way that he did.

[Chorus]
Don't you believe in love?
Don't you believe in love?
It's like you're always waiting for the fall.
Can't you just kiss me once,
Like no one's ever hurt you at all?

[Bridge]
I never raised a hand to your face
Without caressing it.
I never said a hurtful word to you
Without regretting it.
***{And I didn't do you in,
I didn't put you through anything
That should not have been,
Oh what wrong has been done to you?}***
***(difficult to transcribe/somewhat inaudible)***

Baby, what's been done to you?

Well, some people keep a closed heart
But I've seen yours open up wide.
And I have loved you like an angel
Willing to do anything to get to the other side.

[Chorus-modified]
Don't you believe in love?
Don't you believe in love?
It's like you're always waiting for the fall.
Can't you just kiss me once,
Like no one's ever hurt you...

Can't you just kiss me once,
Like no one's ever hurt you...

Like no one's ever hurt you... at all?
