You say love is letting you do what you want
Even if the things that you do will start to ruin how I'm feeling inside
You're always out all night then you try to tell me lies
Because you think that you can say three little words and I'll be spending the

night

You come around and you take and you take and you take
You tear me down and I break and I break and I break
Then you tell me that you love me baby but is that what you call love?

If that's love I'm giving up
My heart can't take it anymore
If that's all it's not enough
You'll watch me walk right out that door
It's like you said before, it's nothing personal
I must be moving on
If that's love, then I'm gone


You think you're just a friend, but you know you can't pretend
Because the way that this playing has got you...what you're saying to me

You set your traps and I fall and I fall and I fall
Then you come back and you crawl and you crawl and you crawl
Then I tell you that you must be crazy cause that's not what I call love

If that's love I'm giving up
My heart can't fake it anymore
If that's all it's not enough
You'll watch me walk right out that door
It's like you said before, it's nothing personal
I must be moving on
If that's love, then I'm gone

Love is not an alibi,
Something that you hide behind
You wanna use it like a weapon baby
But that's not what I call love

If that's love I'm giving up
My heart can't take it anymore
If that's all it's not enough
You'll watch me walk right out that door

If that's love I'm giving up
My heart can't take it anymore
If that's all it's not enough
You'll watch me walk right out that door
It's like you said before, it's nothing personal
I must be moving on
If that's love, then I'm gone

    Lyric Correctionthese are the full correct lyrics;

    you say love is letting you do what you want,
    even if the things that you are doing, start to ruin how I'm feeling inside.
    your always out all night, then you try to tell me lies,
    because you think that you can say 3 little words and I'll be spending the night.
    you come around (and you take and you take)
    you tear me down (and i break and I break)
    then you tell me that you love me baby, but is that what you call love?

    if that's love, I'm giving up, my heart can't take it anymore,
    if that's all, it's not enough, you'll watch me walk right out that door,
    it's like you said before, it's nothing personal,
    I must be moving on, if that's love, then I'm gone.

    You say she's just a friend, but you know you can't pretend.
    Because the way that this is playing's contradicting what you're saying to me.
    You set your traps (and I fall, and I fall, and I fall)
    then you come back (and you crawl and you crawl)
    Gotta tell you that you must be crazy, cause that's not what I call love.

    [chorus] --- "my heart can't fake it anymore"
