06. Amateur Lovers

Oh! Gravity.
by Switchfoot



 

Everyone I know
Needs love like drugs
Like a common cold
We could never shrug

My baby and me
Weíre missing the same stuff
Weíve all got a disease
Deficiency of love

Every day we still try
Every night we still cry
Driving home on the 805

We donít know what weíre doing
We do it again
Weíre just amateur lovers
With amateur friends

I can tell you what youíre thinking now
Before you think that you can settle down

We donít know what weíre doing
Letís do it again

You tried to play it down
But it never stuck
I tried to build this town
Iím getting no such luck
When nobodyís around
I keep my eyes on the clock
There ainít a cure Iíve found
In all my times around this block

Everyday we still try
Every night we still cry
Driving home on the 405

We donít know what weíre doing
We do it again
Weíre just amateur lovers
With amateur friends

I can tell you what youíre thinking now
Before you think that you can settle down
We donít know what weíre doing
Letís do it again

We donít know what weíre doing
Letís do it again
Weíre just amateur lovers
With amateur friends

I can tell you what youíre thinking now
Before you think that you can settle down
Our loviní isnít gonna burn us out

We donít know what weíre doing
Letís do it again

Professional



Behind the Song:
'Oh that we knew how to love each other well! Here's a song that elaborates on the title track with another set of social-physics questions. We all need love so badly- it's how we were made. And yet we're so bad at loving one another. It's our attempt to put another matter of grave consequence in the skin of a pop tune.' Ė Jon Foreman (Switchfoot)
