Love Left

When You Love Too Late…

I wrote this song about 8 months ago now and haven’t performed it live yet so I wanted to share it here. This is an acoustic version with just me and my keyboard and some backing vocals thrown in for funsies.

It’s a story about rejecting love because you’ve been burned in the past so you keep pushing away the one person who truly loves you, then once they finally get fed up and leave you discover you love them too… but all too late.

Lyrics below!

Love Left (Lyrics)

VERSE 1

Love left letters, Love left time

Love left a thousand roses scattered round and poems laced with wine

Love left footsteps, up to my door

And all the days it watched my door stay shut, love left a thousand more

 

PRE CHORUS

I built the walls around my heart to shut out all the pain

I tried my hand at love before and ended up this way

But only when you turn away to leave the door you knew

I know I’ll never find again the way I feel with you

 

CHORUS

I have love left, as long as you stay

Love left, before you close the door and leave,  give me a second chance to tell you I have

Love left, Just don’t walk away

 

VERSE 2

Love left teardrops, love left rain

Love left a thousand diamonds falling down with endings all the same

But when love left, and tried again

You showed up at my door, I didn’t let the right love in

 

PRE CHORUS

I keep the walls around my heart to turn away the pain

I‘ve spun the wheel of love before and ended up the same

But only when you turn away and say that we are through

I know I’ll never find again the way I feel with you CHORUS

I have love left, as long as you stay

I have love left,

before you close the door and leave give me a second chance, to tell you I have

Love left, just don’t walk away

 

BRIDGE

All the time I thought was unending

And all the years that I spent unbending

I know that I will soon be ascending

From all the darkness I’ve been in, and

 

As you turned the sky was crying

A thousand knives in my life, burning

And all the while, I’ve just been trying

To feel the way I feel with you CHORUS

I have love left, as long as you stay

I have love left,

before you close the door and leave give me a second chance, to tell you I have

Love left, just don’t walk away…..
