lyrics

It’s the moments after waking when you’re freest
When the world still lies a woman ripe and warm
And the possibilities all feel so endless
‘Til the hours come and gather like a storm

When the treachery of earning is your mistress
And her tits are hanging teasing out of reach
It’s deliberate that you’re shown all you can’t have
And it’s design that makes you not want what you seek

We can live on love, babe
We can live on love, babe
We can live on love, babe
That’s alright with me

The belt was tightened before you were a baby
It’s a wonder there was room for you at all
For we’re taught so early what all of our worths are
And we’re shown the height of what we can reach for

Maybe once we had our dreams of aspiration
Before cynicism and greed closed in their net
And in the space of two or three generations
We’re now told exactly what it is we’ll get

We can live on love, babe
We can live on love, babe
We can live on love, babe
That’s alright with me

We’re running from so many things we’re afraid of
When there is so little we’ve needed to fear
And as the belly heaves still to be sated
We’re too comatose from gorging to still steer

We can live on love, babe
We can live on love, babe
We can live on love, babe
That’s alright with me
