Story

R.C.: I'm so glad this tune became part of the package. Great melody and tremendous performance by all.

L.L.: When you write songs for the love of writing them and the real reward is in their completion, after years of doing this you end up with many songs that kinda get stuck away in a drawer and forgotten about. About halfway through recording this project Randle asked me if I had anything of my own that I'd like to do. Songs are like babies and it's hard to single out one you favor over another, so I played him several things and once he heard this song he said "Yes, let's do that one." It's not hard to tell that our music is British Invasion influenced. Production wise, it's a style we trust will last forever. Lyrically, this song sends a clear message that love should never hold you down.

Lyrics

If you’ve got somebody that just holds you down
Love shouldn’t treat you that way
When you wanna fly but you’re held to the ground
Reach up above the clouds
When things go wrong and you’re told you’re to blame
Love shouldn’t treat you that way
If they don’t change and things just stay the same
Tell yourself every day
That love shouldn’t treat you that way

Chorus
Oh, why cry your eyes blue
Oh, when you don’t have to

Cause if it feels like he just keeps you around
Love shouldn’t treat you that way
If you don’t feel special it’s worse than it sounds
Stand up don’t be afraid
Tell him love shouldn’t treat you that way

Chorus
Oh, why cry your eyes blue
Oh, when you don’t have to

If you’ve got somebody who just holds you down
Love shouldn’t treat you that way
When you wanna fly but you’re held to the ground
There’s no reason to stay
If love’s gonna treat you that way
Don’t go hide and cry or just close your eyes
Look up make your self say
Love shouldn’t treat you that way
