Keep Your Love Away From Me (song lyrics)

by Kaleem Raja

Apr 10

 

Keep your love away from me

I don’t need the pain

I don’t need the cuts you salt

I don’t want the rain and lightning bolts

Keep the tears

You squeezed from all of our years

And keep your love away from me

 

I feel light and sweet,

After the fall and after the plague

A grown man bought to his knees

All agony, pain and ache.

Falling in love was my biggest fall.

Remember when we met?

You were the key that opened me like a lock

You were a stranger with kindness to give

I was a life lived worth living and sharing

And then the years dimmed the sun

And we were daggers drawn in the dark...

 

Keep your love away from me

I don’t need the pain

I don’t need the cuts you salt

I don’t want the rain and lightning bolts

Keep the tears

You squeezed from all of our years

And keep your love away from me

 

Did you forgive me my misgivings?

I know I forgave you yours.

A man makes do with other virtues

When love has done looting his town.

I still have the scars and photographs,

We can put away the knives and do without words

But can’t erase the past or banish the ghosts.

I  am done with  battle axe juggling.

Those years are done.

I have learnt peace and let back in the sun

For long and far enough to tell you forever more...

 

Keep your love away from me

I don’t need the pain

I don’t need the cuts you salt

I don’t want the rain and lightning bolts

Keep the tears

You squeezed from all of our years

And keep your love away from me
