Strange Love

Strange Love

I wasn't searching for a heart of gold
Honey, I was looking for a hole in the ground.
And all my life, what I'd been told
about love is what I'd found.

Late nights sucking up lines
just to find them in the morning on my face
Yeah, I was scribbling the story of my life away
figured it'd all just be erased anyway.

I wasn't thinking I'd ever grow old
either way, he wouldn't be around.
That man was so damn hard to hold
but I'd lost too much to leave him now.
I thought love meant fights
and closing my eyes
and learning to love through the pain.
Oh sucking up that sad story
I told myself again and again

For all my life..

In all my life
I'd never seen the likes of your kind of strange love.
So I didn't know what it was
I didn't know what it was that kept you hanging on.

I didn't look twice when you walked my way
Nice guys were never my kind.
I was drawn to the pain like a moth to the flame
never knowing the fire that I'd find.
All them nights, all of the fights
and a sweetness with an awful sting.
Not a passion that creates,
one that destroyed everything

For all my life...

For all my life
I'd never seen the likes of your kind of strange love.
So I didn't know what it was
I didn't know what it was that kept you hanging on.

And after all that I said and done
and you didn't run and hide,
yeah, I know you weren't in it for the fun.
And after all that I said and done
and you stood by my side,
yeah baby I knew you were the one
for all my life...

For all my life
I'd never seen the likes of your kind of strange love.
So I didn't know what it was,
I didn't know what it was that kept you hanging on.
Hanging on,
I didn't know what it was,
I didn't know what it was.

Oh I'd never seen the likes of your kind of strange love,
but it kept you hanging on.
