lyrics

You Only Love Yourself
Words & Music: Bettina Johnson
Produced by David Waehner – DW Productions, Atlanta

You kept calling me
Asking why we couldn’t make it
Yeah we had good times
But plenty bad
Hon I just couldn’t take it

Then finally when we were alone that night
Played near the bonfire…danced in the light
You held me close, so why did we fight? Oh…oh

Would you bear me in your arms for life?
Keep me safe and hold me tight
Would you bear me and no one else?
When you only love yourself
You only love yourself

Together by the sea
Spoke of our deepest dreams
We swam the ocean
Of light and dark pearls
Disappeared from the world

Our love, our love
You said you didn’t care
You said it wasn’t there, no more
Yet it lives still
In our memories
In a passing breeze
Mi amore, mi amore

Would you bear me in your arms for life?
Keep me save and hold me tight
Would you bear me and no one else?
When you only love yourself
When you only love yourself

Would you bear me in your arms for life?
Keep me safe and hold me tight
Would you bear me and no one else?
When you only love yourself

You only love yourself
You only love yourself
You only love yourself
