Verse 1

I know you want me to disappear so

You can make your move, and I should let you know

That he still loves you, but what about his trust?

Old pages of books, fond as they are, still covered in dust.

Verse 2

I know what you must be thinking,

That it took you this long to figure out your feelings.

That you don't know what you have till it's gone,

And you didn't know you were in love till he moved on.

Chorus

But it's not love if you feel it only after seeing him in the arms of another-

It's jealously, and wanting what you can't have, what used to be yours.

And it's not love if you didn't trust him; you should have known him better-

Should have heard his side of the story if things seemed to be obscure.

And now after missing your turn,

Seems like once again you're gearing up.

But it's not love,

It's not love,

It's not love,

It's not love.

Verse 3

You said things to hurt him, so did I,

The difference being I kept on apologizing, and crying

Till he knew I didn't mean it, wasn't hurt anymore.

It's not love if you don't care even when your heart's spilled on the floor.

Verse 4

You look distressed when you see

That he's smiling and laughing when hanging out with me.

And I smile whenever I see him smiling, anywhere,

Any time, so if you get him and not me, fate is just unfair.

Chorus

Cause it's not love if you feel it only after seeing him in the arms of another-

It's jealously, and wanting what you can't have, what used to be yours.

And it's not love if you didn't trust him; you should have known him better-

Should have heard his side of the story if things seemed to be obscure.

And now after missing your turn,

Seems like once again you're gearing up.

But it's not love,

It's not love,

It's not love,

It's not love.

Bridge

You misunderstood him,

Didn't want to be around him,

Now you got your wish so

Leave him alone, let it go.

He deserves better.

Chorus

Cause it's not love if you feel it only after seeing him in the arms of another-

It's jealously, and wanting what you can't have, what used to be yours.

And it's not love if you didn't trust him; you should have known him better-

Should have heard his side of the story if things seemed to be obscure.

And now after missing your turn,

Seems like once again you're gearing up.

But it's not love,

It's not love,

It's not love,

It's not love.
