What If I Can't Give You Anything But Love? by Elvis Costello


I'll tell you my secrets and you'll do the same
I'll lend you my name as an alias
I'll take the moonlight falling on your face
And the stars from up above
What if I can't give you anything but love?
Once hearing confession was my profession
Telling me things I don't need to know
So he opened up that door for you
The kind of thrill we'll never have
What if I can't give you anything but love?
Do you love me? It's dangerous to answer in the dark
Do you need me? Hold on while I negotiate that spark
Anticipate an impulse, tell me what I'm supposed to do
Do you want me? Do you want me like I want you?
When this is over I'll go back to my wife
I'm the man that she lives with in that other life
When this is over I'll go back to your dreams
But I'm not quite the man that I used to be
I recall the moonlight falling on your face
You're all that I adore
What if I can't give you anything more?
Don't you need me, baby?
Not one little bit?
Don't fix me with that deadly gaze, it's a little close to pity
This time is overdue, tell me what I'm supposed to do
Do you want me? Do you want me like I want you?
Your eyes wouldn't meet me as we passed on the stairs
The night's not all it's cracked up to be
I recall the moonlight falling on your face
And the stars from up above
What if I can't give you anything but love?
I recall the moonlight falling on your face
The stars from up above
What if I can't give you, what if I can't give you
What if I can't give you anything but love?
