John Martyn – Make No Mistake lyrics

If I can't be a happy man, I won't be no one at all
If I can't be just who I am, I won't let you come to
I was all right before I walked through the door
I was all right outside, but inside I had to cry.

Low today and high tomorrow, I see that it's real
One man's meat's another man's sorrow, do you know how
It feels
To be dead drunk on the floor
To get up and ask for more?
To be lying in the dark crying.

If I can't be a peaceful man, I will be who I can
If I can't get everything I want, I'll just get what I
I was alright before I walked out the door
I was alright inside

But outside I had to look again, again, again...

A love
Love again
A love supreme, divine
Anyway that you want it to be
Love - it's love, it's love
Love! Love! Love!
A love supreme, a love supreme
A love supreme, a love supreme

Make no mistake,
Make no mistake, it's love
Make no mistake, it's love
Make no mistake, it's love...

Divine it's love, it's fine, it's wine, it's time, it's
Love! Love! Love...
Make no mistake, it's love
Make no mistake, it's love

Make no mistake, it's love
It's love... It's love... love...
