“The Only Way to Love” by Vanessa Carlton Lyrics

For you, the coast is clear
Bury my fear, you’re the edge of the ocean
The tide follows what’s right
And so have I
Say, let’s get out of here

There’s a danger when you feel without thinking
In this moment what I fear, I need the most

I wanna run, but I won’t get very far
‘Cause I can’t fight the force of my young beating heart
Like a soldier’s steady march answering the call
It’s the only way to love

Now, we walk the streets
The city speaks the tales of paramours
The wave, it comes for me
Am I brave enough to let go?

We are walking up the stairs to your apartment
You open up the door and let me in

I wanna run, but I won’t get very far
‘Cause I can’t fight the force of my young beating heart
Like a soldier’s steady march answering the call
It’s the only way to love

The energy comes, feel a rush
It will move you
The energy goes, and you trust
It will come back again
Our hands will trace out a map that is ancient
Drawing our fate, all this pain and illusion

I wanna run but I won’t get very far
‘Cause I can’t fight the force of my young beating heart
Like a soldier’s steady march answering the call
It’s the only way to

I wanna run, I won’t get very far
‘Cause I can’t fight the force of my young beating heart
And like a soldier’s steady march answering the call
It’s the only way to love

You’re the edge of the ocean
