lyrics

Love is a Grift
©2019 K. A. Laity

Love is a grift, love is a con;
The only sure thing is he’s putting you on.
He’s a schemer, a thief and a dreamer.

Love is a grift, love is a con;
The only sure thing is he’s putting you on.
He’s a loser, a cad and a boozer.

Love of a stranger
Can lead you into danger,
And trusting in the one you know
Can take you places you shouldn’t go.

BRIDGE

Champagne and whisky
Then play time gets risky.
The night runs hot, you get a lift.
Love is a scam but it’s also a gift.

Love is a grift, love is a con;
The only sure thing is he’s putting you on.
He’s a chiseler, your heart is a prisoner.

Love is a grift, love is a con;
The only sure thing is he’s putting you on.
He’s a cheater, stealing is sweeter.

It’s a gift, it’s a grift, it’s a con...
Lead me on.

about

Victoria Squid Dundee, UK

Exquisite dilettante, hardy chanteuse. Elusive, seductive, mercurial -- inspired by murder ballads and femmes fatale.

Victoria Squid remains an enigma: a voice in the dark, a presence more sensed than seen. She has seen the cities of the world, so anywhere she lays her chapeau can be home. There's a hole in her heart that can only be filled by champagne and laughter.
