"Not A Love Song" as written by and Djavan Caetano Viana....
The scene is dead by morning
Slipping past the great divide
It chases over bridges
Spins me out of my own mind

Hollow is how you like it
What you see is what you get
Say you love me again
But you never do (yeah)

I am not singing a love,
Singing a love song
Cause love is a game to you now
Watch just to see how long
Oh I want to fall away and
Waste another day
Cause love is a game to you now
Watch just to see how long

I see I disappoint you
Why don't you find another threat?
This isn't what you thought now
If you fall, won't you tell me in my ear?
You're here to waste their time dear
But you can't waste mine
Oh say you love me again
But you never do (yeah)

I am not singing a love,
Singing a love song
Cause love is a game to you now
Watch just to see how long
Oh I want to fall away and
Waste another day
Cause love is a game to you now
Watch just to see how long

But if you can't save love anyway,
You'll love again
Cause love is a game to you now
Watch just to see how long
I want to fall away and
Waste another day
Cause love is a game to you now
Watch just to see how long

    General CommentI love this song, I cannot wait for the new album.

    But, I always thought the lyrics to the chorus said, 'I won't sing you a love, sing you a love song.'

    General CommentThese are the lyrics from the CD booklet insert thing.

    The scene is dead by morning
    Slipping past the great divide
    It chases over bridges
    Spins me out of my own mind

    Hollow is how you like it
    What you see is what you get
    Say you love it again
    But you never do

    I am not singing a love,
    Singing a love song
    'Cause love is a game to you now
    Watch just to see how long
    I want to fall away
    And waste another day
    'Cause love is a game to you now
    Watch just to see how long

    I see I disappoint you
    Why don't you find another threat?
    This isn't what you thought now
    If you fall, won't you tell me in my ear?
    You're here to waste their time dear
    But you can't waste mine
    Say you love me again
    But you never do


    But if you can't save love anyway
    You'll love again
    'Cause love is a game to you now
    Watch just to see how long
    I want to fall away
    And waste another day
    'Cause love is a game to you now
    Watch just to see how long

    General CommentStrange that nobody actually seems to be commenting on the lyrics themselves here....
    Anyway, the song is pretty straightforward about a woman who has someone in love with her, but she doesn't love him back. She's telling him off. I'm guessing this person has admired her from a distance, but when s/he got to her, they found out that there was no interest.
