That Ain’t Love




Let’s go out for a drink maybe we’ll even dance
Won’t you take a risk with me to find out if it’s romance
That’s not what you really trying to do, baby
You just wanted to be seen

Well my guitars packed and the spotlights faded
And I’m off to the next city

That ain’t love
That ain’t love
That ain’t love at all
You only pick up the pieces you want
That ain’t love at all

I see you in town from time to time on Comal between 5th and 6th
Dancing with older men who spin you around they’re doing anything to steal a kiss
You take a shot and you bum a cigarette
They hit the men’s room and you sneak out the back

You got your props in their pretty little places
We’re just part of your script

That ain’t love
That ain’t love
That ain’t love at all
You only pick up the pieces you want
That ain’t love at all

Did something happen to you when you were younger
To make you act this way?
Living life like you’re in danger
Of taking somebody’s name?

That ain’t love
That ain’t love
That ain’t love at all
You only pick up the pieces you want
That ain’t love at all
