Sambora, Richie - Downside Of Love Lyrics




There's a danger of getting so close to you.
There comes a time, when the walls fade away,
And when love turns to bitter blue,
Sometimes it feels like it's hard to stay.

Last night we went to bed angry,
We didn't mean what we said.
Seems we never get past forgiveness,
We try to hide, we never learn,
To swallow our pride.

On the downside of love,
Where the love turns to hate, we just can't relate.
On the downside of love,
When you're misunderstood, 'cause when it hurts you.
It hurts you so good.

Baby life has no guarantee,
Never knowing where love's gonna lead.
Even though you're a part of me,
We have to deal with our pain separately.

Sometimes we both feel like victims,
With no easy way out, no, no.
Somehow we stand by each other,
When we're desperate, and drowning in,
The shadows of doubt.

On the downside of love,
Where the love turns to hate, we just can't relate.
On the downside of love,
'Cause when it hurts you, it hurts you so good.

The times we share the tenderness,
Are the times that keep us alive.
You get in my face, you rough me up,
But baby you know,
Can't hurt me 'nough, to give you up,
And make me let go.
Make me let go oh no, no.

When you're on the downside of love,
Where the love turns to hate, we just can't relate.
On the downside of love,
When you're misunderstood, 'cause when it hurts you.
It hurts you so good.

Downside of love,
Love's just a long, long road baby.
Yes there's a down side of love,
Stand by my side baby.
When you're on the downside of love,
No, no, no.
Downside of love,
'Cause it's a long, long road baby.
Downside of love.

    This was a song i really latched onto in 2007 or so. Young love and all that had really got me down. My iTunes say the last time I played, and likely heard, this song was in 2012. Another three years later, and I tell you waht boy, the impact this song has had on me still resonates 8 years later, though to a slightly different tune. I'm not sure if this was an actual good album back in the day since im a little biased, but it has had an enormous impact on at least one person (and maybe a few more).

  6. Old Souled Hippie

    Beautiful, beautiful song. Beautiful album. Beautiful voice. Beautiful guitar. Beautiful man. Can I say anything else?

    susan orion

    that sums it up :)
