Acceptance

by Tom Swift

I’m not gonna write you a love song
’cause you asked for it
’cause you need one, you see
I’m not gonna write you a love song
’cause you tell me it’s make or break in this
If you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving I’m gonna need a better reason
to write you a love song today, today

-Sara Bareilles, Little Voice (2007)
