Justin Currie – Only Love lyrics

Only love makes killing time so cruel
The hours come and you drag them 'round with you
When she is gone the whole hangdog house aches
And you hum along to the sound of heartbreaks
You think you hear in every song

But only love will make you wait so long
For the little gifts that keep you holding on
A scribbled ring 'round the town she's stayin' in
The little dent in the bed you're layin' in
The heady scent she leaves on you

But only love makes killing time so cruel
So many things that you must get ‘round to
A dripping tap amongst mail to sort through
If you could just get your mind to clear
But it’s only love and it keeps you waiting here
