Negative Love - by John Wesley Harding

Negative love
Sceptical eyes beneath a frown
Negative love
You’re always putting other people down
Then they’re gone
And, as they fade away, well, who’s to say that you were wrong?

Negative love
The radio’s playing my request
Negative love
You lie before me, unimpressed
Why say ‘yes’
When you know all the ways to say ‘no’ best

Please don’t make an exception for me
Please don’t make an exception
There’s no hope for me and you
Cos I’m a little negative too

Cynical you
I see the look that’s in your eyes
Cynical you
And it’s saying ‘I don’t sympathise’
No surprise
Only the naïve believe in love and other lies

Please don’t make an exception for me
Please don’t make an exception
There’s no hope for me and you
Cos I’m a little negative too
I’m a little negative too

We’re the wrong side of one
I should change my name to John Undone
Or maybe we’re on to something
Could we end up positive after all?

Please don’t lower you standards for me,
Please don’t lower your standards
There’s no hope for me and you
Cos I’m a little negative too
There’s nothing for me and you
Cos I’m a little negative, I’m a little cynical
I’m a little negative, I’m a little critical
I’m a little negative too
