Love Song Lyrics

Head under water
and they tell me to breathe easy for a while.
The breathing gets harder, even I know that.
You made room for me, but it's too soon to see
if I'm happy in your hands.
I'm unusually hard to hold on to.

Blank stares at blank...

    I think to that song toward the open the album kind of like chapter of our lives to changed that it more like to change things around these are the moments to have memories toward that breakup song it made up from Jonas brothers. They broke up since about 2013 but it’s going to be a great band to watch absolutely love the styles and listening and go to every music camps.

    i think it is about her boyfriend telling her to write him a a love song..."its make or break" i think he tells her if she dosent make him a love song they break up. sara wants to be true to herself and not be loved because she made him a love song but to be loved for who she is. so she made a song telling him she's not making him a love song because he's trying to force her to.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    love song is about sara not wanting to be loved for writing a love song but for her true self. Not for a talent but for her true personality.

    This is a really clever song. It is about Sara's record label pushing her to write a love song however she found it hard and didn't want to. She also felt it didn't relate to her personal style and she wanted to express herself in her own way and stay true to her personal style. Then she named the song 'Love song' as a sort of 'IN YOUR FACE' to her record label.

    It's a really good song about how her record label pushed her to write a love song and she didn't want to so she wrote a song about them wanting her to write a love song. Which in my opinion is probably liked better than if she would've wrote a love song in the first place! Go Sara!

    This song is about how Sara's record label pushed her to write more love songs because they sell. She wanted to be true to her music and write about what she thought. "I'm not gonna write you a love song/cuz you tell me it's make or break in this"
