Song lyrics
Head under water
And they tell me to breathe easy for a while
The breathing gets harder, even I know that

You made room for me, but it's too soon to see
If I'm happy in your hands
I'm unusually hard to hold on to

Blank stares at blank pages
No easy way to say this
You mean well, but you make this hard on me

I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you asked for it
'Cause you need one, you see
I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you tell me it's make or breaking this
If you're on your way
I'm not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving
I'mma need a better reason to write you a love song today

I learned the hard way
That they all say things you want to hear
My heavy heart sinks deep down under you
And your twisted words, your help just hurts
You are not what I thought you were
Hello to high and dry

Convinced me to please you
Made me think that I need this too
I'm trying to let you hear me as I am

I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you asked for it
'Cause you need one, you see
I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you tell me it's make or breaking this
If you're on your way,
I'm not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving
I'mma need a better reason to write you a love song today

Promise me you'll leave the light on
To help me see with daylight, my guide, gone
'Cause I believe there's a way you can love me because I say

I won't write you a love song
'Cause you asked for it
'Cause you need one, you see
I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you tell me it's make or breaking this
Is that why you wanted a love song
'Cause you asked for it?
'Cause you need one, you see
I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you tell me it's make or breaking this
If you're on your way
I'm not gonna write you to stay
If your heart is nowhere in it
I don't want it for a minute
Babe, I'll walk the seven seas when I believe that there's a reason to
Write you a love song today

This song has a good topic... even though it sounds like she made it up in a couple of minutes. Still, it's catchy and it's hummable.

If you hate a song, fine, you do. However, at least tell us why you do and back it up with a reason. You're not helping anyone out if you just say the song sucks.

the person who wrote the two reviews above me knows what they're on about. completely agree with you.

whats with theones above that??? how can you think she's great? you really don't know music if you think Sara Bareilles is great...
I suggest you try bands like Led Zeppelin and Rage Against the Machine and Alexisonfire.

the rythm in this song is crap. its just the same the whole time, no variation what so ever. She thought of a good melody (thats if she even wrote it) because its the kinda song that when you hear, you can't help but hum it (like when your in the supermarket and it comes on lol), no matte how much you hate it. Instruments, very basic, she did not explore at all into what the instruments can actually do - its like her other song, they sound the same. Lyrics are crap as. it reminds me of opera of she sings the most stupid and simple things like singing "i heard a knock on the door! i wonder who it is!! i shall go and answer and find out!" and her voice, she can sing, but she doesn't use it much. there is a very limited range that she sings in and its like shes not wanting to be great by exploring more.

I think shes better suited for singing in musicals like Hair onstage rather than the music industry. The only way she's surviving at the moment is because of the teeny boppers who love this kind of music. she won't last though. very boring all in all

it also doesn't help that this song was featured on the Rhapsody commercial a while ago...

this song is ridiculously overplayed
and every freakin girl at my school knows the lyrics to the entire song
(one person even sang it for the talent show...which should'nt even be considered talent in the first place since a lot of girls can sing this)
what's happening to good music these days?

I think the tune has a very good variety and is recognizable, but lacks a feeling of getting both a slow song and an upbeat song. I think it would have been better to bring more of the band into the song and plenty of opportunities were open to do this.

This is a really good song.
Really catchy.
I don't quite get the lyrics... they're quite confusing... but besides that the song is a good quality song and is worth a listen.
