Story

I've known family members, close friends, associates and acquaintances that were in abusive relationships. Whenever I try to convince them to get out, they come up with all kinds of excuses, but the one excuse that I hear again and again is "We love each other-he's just going through some things." But that ain't no love. People who love you don't abuse you. Abuse is a form of control, not love.

Lyrics

Aint No Love
[C. Harrigan]
He only puts you down to hide his insecurities
cause deep inside he knows he don't deserve your loyalty
cause everytime he cuss you out and beat you down girl
he's praying that you stick around
he's hoping no one else will notice you
because he knows what he stands to lose
so now you tell your girlfriends at the job that you fell again
and when he grabbed you by the arm he's only playing
its sad to say but he'll never stop
baby girl that ain't what loves about

chorus
That aint no love no
when he tell you that he love
then he turn around and black up your eye
that aint no love no
when he say how much he miss you
but he can't find his way home at night
That aint no love
That aint no love no
when he tell you that your beautiful
then he turn around and black up your eye
that aint no love no
when he say how much he miss you
but he can't find his way home at night
That aint no love no
and I hate to break it to you girl
but that just aint what loves about
that aint no love no

Girl he doesn't have a clue what you're going thru
he's more concerned with his style than being good to you
and now you blame yourself for something that you didn't do
its not your fault that he don't appreciate you
wish you could see what you're doing to yourself
and all because of someone else
so now he tells you last time was the last time
beating on you like it was his past time
wish you could see that he's just so insecure
even he knows you deserve more
I hate to say it but he'll never stop
baby girl that aint what loves about

chorus

He only puts you down to hide his insecurities
because he knows what you deserve he will never be
broken hearted and bruised your still beautiful
he see the fellas in the streets how the look at you
and even as he pushes you away
he's hoping that you'll stay and never go away
girl he doesn't have a clue what you're going thru
he more concerned with his style than with loving you
its sad to say but he'll never stop
baby girl that aint what loves about

chorus
