LITTLE LOVE
Melissa Ferrick


hey there little love

yeah you took me for a ride

all the way across the country

we were waiting for our love to be realized

but you hardly ever even looked at me

yeah but you gave me no reason to be afraid

but when you finally put your hands on me

oh yeah you know I thought for sure

I thought for sure i'd been saved



so I let you in

oh I let you in

yeah then you took advantage of me

and then I let you down

oh I let you down by telling you

I thought I might be falling into something



oh yeah but you

don't want and you don't need

and you don't wait and you don't love

but you don't know yeah you don't know how I feel

so don't call me and don't write

and don't you dare tell me that you miss me tonight

cause I need someone who's going to be home when I get there

little love



now you tell me that what I do for a living

yeah well it is actually a turn off for you

cause I am just smiled at and touched

yeah and my fingers

my fingers are far too rough

and then I tell you

"you know honey, love doesn't know distance"

and then you turn around and look at me and say

"yeah but my arms do"



oh yeah but you

don't want and you don't need

and you don't wait and you don't love

but you don't know yeah you don't know how I feel

so don't call me and don't write

and don't you dare tell me that you miss me tonight

cause I need someone who's going be home when I get there

little love oh my little love



but my stomach hurts

when I hear your name

and so I just keep replaying the film

of the time when you helped me off the stage

and you know that if you think that this is game

well I am not joking

cause my heart she is tired

she is tired of being broken



so hey there

little love

yeah you took me

yeah you took me for a ride

little love

you took me for a ride


MELISSA FERRICK

American singer-songwriter Melissa Ferrick (born September 21, 1970) emerged in 1991 as part of a group of new female alternative singer/songwriters, much in the vein of Liz Phair. Ferrick began singing in coffeehouses after dropping out of college, eventually winding up in Boston. Her major breakthrough arrived one night when she replaced Morrissey's opening act less than an hour before showtime. Ferrick's performance impressed Morrissey and he invited her to open for him during the rest of the tour. ... Read More
