The Lumineers—Stubborn Love

The line in bold is one of my favorite lyrics of all time…so true…so profound.

VERSE 1
SHE’LL LIE AND STEAL AND CHEAT, AND BEG YOU FROM HER KNEES
MAKE YOU THINK SHE MEANS IT THIS TIME
SHE’LL TEAR A HOLE IN YOU THE ONE YOU CAN’T REPAIR
BUT I STILL LOVE HER I DON’T REALLY CARE

BRIDGE
WHEN WE WERE YOUNG OH OH WE DID ENOUGH
WHEN IT GOT COLD OOH OOH WE BUNDLED UP
I CAN’T BE TOLD AH AH IT CAN’T BE DONE

VERSE 2
IT’S BETTER TO FEEL PAIN THAN NOTHING AT ALL
THE OPPOSITE OF LOVE’S INDIFFERENCE
SO PAY ATTENTION NOW I’M STANDING ON YOUR PORCH SCREAMIN OUT
AND I WON’T LEAVE UNTIL YOU COME DOWNSTAIRS

CHORUS
SO KEEP YOUR HEAD UP KEEP YOUR LOVE
SO KEEP YOUR HEAD UP KEEP YOUR LOVE
SO KEEP YOUR HEAD UP KEEP YOUR LOVE
SO KEEP YOUR HEAD UP KEEP YOUR LOVE

VERSE
AND I DON’T BLAME YA DEAR FOR RUNNING LIKE YOU DID ALL THESE YEARS
I WOULD DO THE SAME YOU BEST BELIEVE
AND THE HIGHWAY SIGNS SAY WE’RE CLOSE, BUT I DON’T READ THOSE THINGS ANYMORE
I NEVER TRUSTED MY OWN EYES
BRIDGE
WHEN WE WERE YOUNG OH OH WE DID ENOUGH
WHEN IT GOT COLD OOH OOH WE BUNDLED UP
I CAN’T BE TOLD AH AH IT CAN’T BE DONE

CHORUS
SO KEEP YOUR HEAD UP KEEP YOUR LOVE
SO KEEP YOUR HEAD UP KEEP YOUR LOVE
SO KEEP YOUR HEAD UP KEEP YOUR LOVE
SO KEEP YOUR HEAD UP KEEP YOUR LOVE
