I want love but it's impossible
A man like me so irresponsible
A man like me is dead in places
Other men feel liberated.

And I can't love shot full of holes
Don't feel nothing, I just feel cold.
Don't feel nothing, just old scars
Toughening up around my heart.

But I want love, just a different kind.
I want a love won't break me down,
Won't brick me up, won't fence me in.
I want a love that don't mean a thing.
That's the love I want. I want love.

I want love on my own terms,
After everyting I've ever learned.
Me, I carry too much baggage.
Oh man, I've seen so much traffic.

So bring it on, I've been bruised.
Don't give me love that's clean and smooth.
I'm ready for the rougher stuff.
No sweet romance, I've had enough.

(Instrumental)

A man like me is dead in places
Other men feel liberated.

But I want love, just a different kind.
I want a love won't break me down,
Won't brick me up, won't fence me in.
I want a love that don't mean a thing.
That's the love I want. I want love.

But I want love, just a different kind.
I want a love won't break me down,
Won't brick me up, won't fence me in.
I want a love that don't mean a thing.
That's the love I want. I want love.
