"Book of Love" as written by and James Adkins Thomas Linton....
I wasn't worried about the small things
Tried to bury what they might or could of meant
And as far away as you could get, as distant as you've ever been
You still love me

The book of love is fiction
Written by the loneliest to sing
Thinking led to in the best
Learning things they should forget
Until the end

So maybe we should plan then
Of who would go, and who would stay, and when
Until one of us can say it like it is
You've already made your own bed

Can you tell me what just happened
Where's my girlfriend with her ancient pindred lime
I pick you up on a Wednesday night
Go out for our secret drive
Like we were kids
Will we be alright
I have never doubted it before my friend
Are they ever coming back again
Those feelings that we started with
I'll give it time

And maybe we should plan then
Of who will go, and who will stay, and when
Until one of us can say it like it is
You've already made your own bed

I deserve the truth
But I'm so afraid of what It'd do
Finally seeing us for how it really is
I've been alone just never noted

Its time we had a plan then
Of who will go, and who will stay, and when
Until one of us can say it like it is
You've already made your own bed

I deserve the truth
But I'm so afraid of what It'd do
Finally seeing us for how it really is
I've been alone just never noted

    General CommentSONG LYRIC CORRECTION
    There are some errors on the lyrics posted here. The words in quotes are the correct ones.

    The book of love is fiction
    Written by the loneliest to sing
    Thinking "they're" doing the best
    Learning things they should forget
    Until the end

    So maybe we should plan then
    Of who "will" go, and who "will" stay, and when
    Until one of us can say it like it is
    You've already made your own bed

    Can you tell me what just happened
    Where's my girlfriend with her "engine pinned red line"
    I pick you up on a Wednesday night
    Go out for our secret drive
    Like we were kids

    General CommentThe lyrics shown here are slightly inaccurate.
    I listened to the song several times and referred to both the lyrics shown here and the lyrics in the lyric booklet included with the album (which was almost totally accurate, but actually wrong on a few minor things such as having "call it like it is" in place of "say it like it is"), and this is what I determined the lyrics to be:


    I wasn't worried about the small things
    Tried to bury what they might or could have meant
    And as far away as you could get
    As distant as you'd ever been

    The book of love is fiction
    Written by the loneliest who sing
    Thinking they're doing their best
    Learning things they should forget
    Until the end

    So maybe we should plan, then
    Of who will go, and who will stay, and when
    Until one of us can say it like it is...
    You've already made your own bed

    Can you tell me what just happened?
    Where's my girlfriend with her engine pinned redline
    I pick you up on a Wednesday night
    Go off on a secret ride

    I've been alone, just never known it
