Advertising Free Love


How many lovers does it take,
To know one love.
Without the heartache.
And the pain...
To overcome the viciousness that remains.

How many lovers does it take,
To know one love.
With a faithfulness.
That's grateful.
Without being down low and safe.

How many lovers does it take,
To know one love.
Without the heartache.
And the pain...
To overcome the viciousness that remains.

People getting close to advertising free love.
People getting close to it and they are not getting it.
They are not getting it.
They are not getting it.
People getting close to advertising free love.
People getting close to it and they are not getting it.
They are not getting it.
They are not getting it.

How many lovers does it take,
To know one love.
Without the heartache.
And the pain...
To overcome the viciousness that remains.

People getting close to advertising free love.
But what does it take,
To get true love.
People getting close to advertising free love.
But what does it take,
To get true love.
People getting close to advertising free love.
People getting close to it and they are not getting it.
But what does it take,
To get true love.
People getting close to advertising free love.
But what does it take,
To get true love.
People getting close to it and they are not getting it.
And people getting close to advertising free love.
But what does it take,
To get true love?

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
