Mary Chapin Carpenter - It Don’t Bring You lyrics

Well I know it ain't been roses lately
Baby it's just been thorns
And no matter what we do
Nothing seems to change
Love has always been my shelter
For you it's been a storm
But for a while I thought
We'd almost beat the rain

Now there's a hole here in my pocket
Where all my dreams have gone
Falling out like so many nickels and dimes
And last of all you
You'd always been my good luck charm
I should've known that luck
It was a waste of time

Cause it don't bring you love if you don't love
And it don't bring you time if you ain't got time
And it don't bring you strength baby if you ain't strong
And it don't bring you kindness if you ain't kind

Now there's a whole lot in life to be unsure of
But there's one thing I can safely say I know
That of all the things that finally desert us
Pride is always the last thing to go

But it don't bring you love if you don't love
And it don't bring you time if you ain't got time
And it don't bring you strength baby if you ain't strong
And it don't bring you kindness if you ain't kind

And now I wish you only roses without the thorns
And I hope your dreams are always within reach
And I wish you shelter baby from all your storms
They scared you but they never seemed to teach

That I can't bring you love if you don't love
And I can't bring you time if you ain't got time
And I can't bring you strength baby if you ain't strong
And I can't bring you kindness if you ain't kind
And I can't bring you kindness if you ain't kind
