How Do You Love Someone

"How Do You Love Someone?"



Momma never told me how to love,
Daddy never told me how to feel,
Momma never told me how to touch,
Daddy never showed me how to heal

Momma never set a good example,
Daddy never held mommas hand
Momma found everything hard to handle,
Daddy never stood up like a man

I’ve walked alone, broken, emotionally frozen,
Getting it on, getting it wrong

How do you love someone, without getting hurt,
How do you love someone without crawling in the dirt
So far in my life clouds have blocked the sun
How do you love, How do you love someone
How do you love, How do you love someone


I was always a chosen child,
The biggest scandal I became,
They told me I’d never survive,
But survive was my middle name

I’ve walked alone, hoping, just barely coping,
Getting it on, getting it wrong

How do you love someone, without getting hurt,
How do you love someone without crawling in the dirt
So far in my life clouds have blocked the sun
How do you love, How do you love someone
How do you love, How do you love someone

It’s hard to talk,
see whats deep inside,
it’s hard to tell the truth,
when youve always lied


How do you love someone, without getting hurt,
How do you love someone without crawling in the dirt
So far in my life clouds have blocked the sun
How do you love, How do you love someone

How do you love someone, and make it last,
How do you love someone, without shrinking on the past
So far in my life clouds have blocked the sun
How do you love, How do you love someone
How do you love, How do you love someone
Someone
