Not the Lovin' Kind

It all began so carefree,
But then the first days always do.
You laugh and love alone in the world,
With nobody to answer to.

 

Suddenly, the stakes are changed,
By some minute event.
Commitment makes its presence felt,
And you wonder where your freedom went.

 

Pour out the spirit, pour out the wine,
Help me to change my mind;
I've fallen in love with a man,
But he's not the lovin' kind.

 

Woman follows instinct here;
She cares, so feels secure.
But man is always weighing up,
So many men are never sure.

 

How can he one day be so near,
And the next so far away?
Only a cold heart could be so cruel,
Turning my love away.

 

Pour out the spirit, pour out the wine,
Help me to change my mind.
I've fallen in love with a man,
But he's not the lovin' kind.

 

He showed me a heart of stone,
He said he'd been hurt before.
But that don't change my feelings none,
It made me want to hold him more.

 

So here I sit beside the bar,
With my good friends all around,
I’m hopin' that the weight of liquor here,
Is gonna hold my feelings down.

 

Pour out the spirit, pour out the wine,
Help me to change my mind.
I've fallen in love with a man,
But he's not the lovin' kind.

 

Pour out the spirit, pour out the wine,
Help me to change my mind;
I've fallen in love with a man,
But he's not the lovin' kind.
He’s not, he’s not, the lovin’ kind.
