"Please Don't Call It Love" as written by and Sean Watkins Jonathan Foreman....
You were indifferent
I was young
We were both drinking fiction with greedy tounges
You were waiting for someone
Something to happen
Something irrational
Climbing the walls and falling in love

How do you find me here my dove
Where my sun also rises sure enough
I was waiting for someone
Something to happen
Something ridiculous
Climbing the walls and falling to what I now would call your bluff

Please don't call it love

Screaming like screen play off the cuff
We were both stuck pretending our dreams were enough
I will walk in the morning worn in the day
I thought I could I have you miles away from falling in love

Truth finds time sweet enough
Please don't call it love

    Song MeaningI believe the last part should be:

    Screening our screenplay off the cuff,
    We were both stuck pretending our dreams were enough.
    I awoke in the morning worn in the day
    I thought I could have you miles away from falling in love.

    Gin finds tonic sweet enough.

    Please Don't call it Love.


    Other than that I believe the song (to me anyway) is about naivety. I almost get a sense of embarrassment for being innocent. I see a younger person (or even just a more inexperienced person) getting with an older person (Or more experienced person) and being naive enough to believe that something more than just physical things would come of it. It's a belief that the more experienced of the two people is actually interested in the younger and then the younger's realization that they were just being used for "benefits" so to speak. This is entirely my interpretation. I could be completely off.
