I caught a piece of the sun-shine
Put a little hope in me
But after the flood raged
There's nothing really left to see
But I was not done or beat
The violence was a source of strength
Not everything is always just as it seems

What you call love is just urgency
What you call love is a place you turn in an emergency
What you give up when it's not what you wanted to be
But that's not love, what you call love

I caught a piece of the sun-shine
It burned a little hole in me after the flood raged
There's nothing really left to see
But I was not done or beat
The violence was a source of strength
Not everything is always just as it seems

What you call love is just urgency
What you call love is a place you turn in an emergency
What you give up when it's not what you wanted to be
That's not love, what you call love

What you call love is just urgency
What you call love is a place you turn in an emergency
What you give up when it's not what you want it to be
But that's not love, what you call love
Well that's not love, what you call love
Well that's not love, what you call love

    Lyric Correction>>The violence was a so-so strength<<

    Is actually "the violence was a source of strength."

    >>What you call love so placed you tell it in emergency<<

    Is actually "what you call love is a place you turn in an emergency."

    The song is pretty straight-forward in my opinion.
