Alexz Johnson - Ruthless Love Lyrics

There is a time to be alone
A time when you buy new shoes
A time for grieving
A time for believing
A time to lose

There is a feeling that won't settle down
It picks you right up off the ground

But like the spin of the world
Butterflies you ignore
We never see the oceans end
It's the slam of the door
Like a tide hits the shore
And here we go again
This ruthless love

There is a pain that be explained
You've given yourself away
When you'd take the bullet
You're a fool and you know it
You have nothing to gain

But like the spin of the world
Butterflies you ignore
We never see the oceans end
It's the slam of the door
Like a tide hits the shore
And here we go again
This ruthless love

It's a cruel world
It's a cruel world
It's a cruel world
You better watch out, son

It's a cruel world
It's a cruel world
It's a cruel world
You better watch out, son

It's the slam of the door
Like a tide hits the shore
And here we go again
This ruthless love
This ruthless love

There is a time to be alone
A time when you buy new shoes

  1. Prince Nelson

    Her voice reminds of christina Aguilera

  2. Elli B

    She was SO GOOD LIVE with this song! Was so happy I got to meet her! But being as shy as I am I didnt know what to say, kind of felt bad.. but I will never forget it!! She was so nice and sweet and just hanging out at the venue while opening bands played. It was such a chill and intimate show ❤

  46. Frensis26

    you are AMAZING. You deserve so much more recognition and I'm sure you'll get it! 😘

    Ems The Unicorpse

    +Frensis26 ugh I know, everyone is like "Beiber! 1D! Katie Perri!"
    it's sad. A lot of songs now a days have no soul

    DosMorochosYAlgoMás VEVO

    +Ems the Unicorpse Alexz is really amazing, I love her. But i think that Katy´s songs have soul...Double Rainbow...Pearl...Not Like The Movies...Who Am I Living For?...Im Still Breathing....Lost....This Moment...It Takes Two...Choose Your Battles....By The Grace Of God...Spiritual....Love Me...Thinking Of You...Teenage Dream.... Sadly people only know her by Dark Horse and California Gurls :(

    Ems The Unicorpse

    Yeah i agree Katie has some good songs, I listened to all those songs you listened when i was young but not anymore, still think she is cool :)

    Agent J

    I bet she’s not doing it for the recognition. She’s doing it for the love of making music. Sometimes it isn’t about recognition at all.

  47. Judith Ojeda

    The song and the video are absolutely perfect! Alexz.... your voice is one of the best in this industry. Thanks :)

  48. ramezi naceur

    she is so unique as a human being. I have been in love with her work since i was 16. Now that i am 24 years old i still listen to her incredible work. I really appreciate singers like you, because you are so rare.

    quana smith

    +Danelle17 i think as a representation of innocence....we all dream of love different when were younger and then when were older an experience it...we realize its not quite what we imagined....(my interpretation)

    quana smith

    +quana smith and*

    Simply Breanna

    Because she's my best friend and they needed a dancer good enough


    no i meant why did alexz johnson hire her for the music video i am trying to figure out what the song is about.

  70. DegrassiInstantStar

    Alexz officially on Vevo? That is a sight I never thought I'd see. The video is definitely unique, but then again, so is Alexz and her craft. I love the video and cannot wait to see more visuals from the "Let 'Em Eat Cake" album.

  71. thelanawhite

    Oh this is just gorgeous! I love it, I love Laura in it too, this is my favourite video so far! ♥

  77. Alejandra Alas
