Rain loves the flowers for a drop at a time when they collide
Petals love the dirt and make them strong when flowers die
Dirt tries to love everything but it's only dirt

Just because it hurts
Don't mean that it's love

You are the punch line to every joke i've ever told
You are in coffee and everything I've ever loved
You can kiss a million other boys, I don't mind
You can't break what's not real

Just because it hurts
Don't mean that it's love

    General Commentone of the most amazing songs
    just the chorus "just because it hurts don't mean that its love" is extravagant
    the age of rockets has some amazing sounds, deep lyrics from andrew futral, and fantastic potential, so support them

    General CommentHe thought he loved her, but realized he was wrong.
    I particularly like "You are the punch line to every joke i've ever told". There's usually a certain amount of bitterness I get coming out of a relationship and this sums it up quite concisely.

    I love the textures he creates with sound, but some of these lyrics, I hate to admit, are rather weak. "Just because it hurts, don't mean that it's love," for example.

    General CommentI love this band. His voice is great in this song. I agree that some of these lyrics arent all that great, but in general I think they're good. I disagree that "Just because it hurts, don't mean that it's love" is bad lyrics. I think they're great in this song. I think this band'll be huge someday.
