lyrics

Love’s Not Wasted

Just south of Detroit I was thinking of you again
about that time you read my mind
and jumped in for a swim
You lost your glasses
I dove in and found them in the black sea
I gave you your sight
to see in the night
what did you give me?

Love is wasted on the wicked
but love’s not wasted on the wise
You couldn’t take it
You just kicked it
with all your dirty lies

I’ve gone and grown
and sung on all the stages
I’ve lost my pride, I’ve lost my mom
You’ve gone to get your doctor of fears and of rages
so you don’t have to love no one

Love is wasted on the wicked
but love’s not wasted on the wise
You couldn’t take it
You just kicked it
with all your dirty lies

Now you can write prescriptions
from the bottle that you ran from
I’m loving someone else
And are you feeling grand now?
Or is something missing
now that you’re all by yourself

Love is wasted on the wicked
but love’s not wasted on the wise
You couldn’t take it
You just kicked it
with all your dirty lies

Love is wasted on the wicked
but love’s not wasted on the wise
You can take it
You can lick it
Just open up your eyes
Open your eyes

Erika Kulnys Nova Scotia

"...ingenious intellect and activist zeal of Ani DiFranco with poetic skepticism of Leonard Cohen, Kulnys is cementing her place in history books...ballad-aesthetic of Tori Amos...craftsmanship vast as the Atlantic. Spin the cheekiness of Dolly Parton with overt sexuality of Kinnie Starr, and toe-tapping rhythms of Colleen Power to conjure up her multi-dimensional talents.” - Shannon Webb-Campbell ... more
