Watered Down Love

By Bob Dylan

Love that’s pure hopes all things,
Believes all things, won’t pull no strings,
Won’t sneak up into your room, tall, dark and handsome,
Capture your soul and hold it for ransom.

 

You don’t want a love that’s pure
You wanna drown love
You want a watered-down love

Love that’s pure, it don’t make no false claims,
Intercedes for you ‘stead of casting the blame,
Will not deceive you or lead you into transgression,
Won’t write it up and make you sign a false confession.

You don’t want a love that’s pure
You wanna drown love
You want a watered-down love

Love that’s pure won’t lead you astray,
Won’t hold it back, won’t get in your way,
Won’t pervert you, corrupt you with foolish wishes,
It won’t make you envious, won’t a-make you suspicious.

You don’t want a love that’s pure
You wanna drown love
You want a watered-down love

Love that’s pure, no accident,
It knows that it knows, and is always content,
An eternal flame, quietly burning –
Heaven needs to be proud, loud or restlessly yearning!

You don’t want a love that’s pure
You wanna drown love
You want a watered-down love.
