The Lumineers – “Stubborn Love” (Official Video)

“Stubborn Love”

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
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

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 screaming out

And I won’t leave until you come downstairs

So keep your head up, keep your love

Keep your head up, my love [x2]

Keep your head up, keep your love

And I don’t blame you dear for running like you did all these years

I would do the same, you’d best believe

And the highway signs say we’re close but I don’t read those things anymore

I never trusted my own eyes

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

So keep your head up, keep your love

Keep your head up, my love [x2]

Keep your head up, keep your love

Head up, love

Head up, love

Head up, love

Head up, love
