“Once Was Love” by Ingrid Michaelson Lyrics

Don’t delay, something tells me
I gotta go away

Maybe it’s the way we always stay
When our hearts have gone

We can’t hold us anymore
No we’ve got to fold

Down to the floor, yes, I know it’s cold
But baby, our hearts have gone

Just because there once was love
Don’t mean a thing, don’t mean a thing, no

Just because there once was love
Don’t mean a thing, don’t mean a thing, no

Just because there once was love
Don’t mean a thing, don’t mean a thing, no
Just because there once was love

I gotta see if I’m filled up when it’s only me
It’s not your fault but you just can’t be here

Now that my heart is gone, now that my heart is gone
Now that my heart is gone

Just because there once was love
Don’t mean a thing, don’t mean a thing, no

Just because there once was love
Don’t mean a thing, don’t mean a thing, no

Just because there once was love
Don’t mean a thing, don’t mean a thing, no
Just because there once was love

Everyone is hurting now
And everything is burning down
But I can build back my new town today, today

Just because there once was love
Don’t mean a thing, don’t mean a thing, no
Just because there once was love
Don’t mean a thing, don’t mean a thing, no

Just because there once was love
Don’t mean a thing, don’t mean a thing, no
Just because there once was love
There once was love, there once was love

There once was love, there once was love
There once was love, there once was love
There once was love, there once was love
