It's not romantic.
It's not the first time.
It isn't magic.
It isn't soulful.
It won't be true for me or you,
But it'll do.
It'll do.

It isn't heartful.
It isn't lovesick.
It won't be precious.
It won't be tender.
It's not a fairytale.
It wasn't heaven-sent,
But it'll do.
It'll do.

I'll pass the time with you,
Because it's so simple and sweet.
They'll be no hard times to get through.
Nothing to fear.
And when the day is done.
We have all had our fun.
We will both find a place to sleep.

I'm not a savior, I'm not a saint.
I'm not a partner, I'm not a friend.
I'm not a blessing, I'm not a gift.
I will not cry when this ends.
I'm not a muse to feed your soul.
But I'll do, for you.

You'll pass the time with me,
'Cause it's so dark and free.
It won't be good for me.
But it'll do.

    My InterpretationThis song resonates with me so deeply. To me it simply means that you can't have who you really want so you are willing to settle...'It'll Do!' It is a pathetic compromise and sacrifice of the love that you really want, just to have less than!
