about

if you can't be with the one you love

lyrics

Love is hard to get
But it ain't hard to find
The one I love is miles away in body spirit and mind

I can't give you my heart
Or complete devotion
My love isn't pure
Nor deep as an ocean
If you give me the world
I'll give you a fraction
All that I'm looking for is a lovely distraction
lovely distraction, lovely distraction, not quite satisfaction, but lovely, lovely distraction

Some folks say
I just want what's not mine
Oh maybe they're right
But for now I'll bide my time

I can't give you my heart
Or complete devotion
My love isn't pure
Nor deep as an ocean
If you give me the world
I'll give you a fraction
All that I'm looking for is a lovely distraction
lovely distraction, lovely distraction, not quite satisfaction, but lovely, lovely distraction

I have a vision - it's crystal clear
He's holding me close - the kids are near
He pulls me in close - lips to my ear
And whispers "sweet darling... I love you my dear"

Some folks say
I just want what's not mine
Some folks say it's fate - that he'll come to me in time

Lovely distraction
Lovely distraction
A human reaction to dissatisfaction
If you give me the world
I'll give you a fraction
All that I'm looking for is a lovely distraction
Lovely distraction
Lovely distraction
Not quite satisfaction, but lovely lovely distraction

Sarah Burton Toronto, Ontario

Burton’s career started in 2006 with a broken heart, a broken down van, and a haphazard tour across Canada in a van named Lucky. This set the tone for an artist life driven by adventure, spontaneity, and a desire to connect with people from all walks of life. ... more
