YOU CAN'T HELP WHO YOU LOVE over loads of under tones pull you into the throws of hopes and dreams and no you can't help who you love despite all your genius when that rooster crows oh heaven knows you can't help who you love you can’t help who you love enter swarms no herds of birds and bees like you wouldn't believe and still the thought of these makes you weak in the knees and her touch could make you blush yeah light up like a lantern cause you can't help who you love you can’t help who you love you can't help so you love and you love and you love and you love and you love so you love and you love and you love and you love sweeping feelings under rugs and then one day you’re slamming door and passing bucks just like everyone does and drained as leaves in tea cups you're making up from storms with hugs you can't help who you love you can't help who you love finding lumps in thunderbolts and lightning strikes the grip of a nightmare grasps you tight and life goes bump in the night and its sickness come to frighten us take me take me you’ll beg you’ll plead you can't help so you love and you love and you love and you love and you love so you love and you love and you love and you love finding comfort in strangers voices in angels you’re told you’re too close to turn to and thats when they hurt you yeah that when they push you away it’s cruel life and its strength is such you hate its guts you care so much you can't help who you love you can’t help who you love And so you nod your head behind the scenes like you know what it all means keep things sterile clean and although you’ve never been one to believe all that new age stuff you thank your stars that someone does you can't help so you love and you love and you love and you love and you love so you love and you love and you love and you love skin as pale as paper thin that you’re injecting in once glowed now at best you s’pose that you cushion the blows cause you know as well and those drips and drugs that you do not ease it nothing does day to day dawn to dusk life to death dust to dust you can't help who you love you can’t help who you love you just love who you love you just love who you love so just love who you love (C&P Ruth Theodore 2016)
