Love ’em ’til It’s Gone

Love ‘em ‘til it’s Gone
Words and Music by Tessa and Jay Frost

They’re out there hatin’, leaving you dry
Filling the airwaves with ignorance and pride
Or hanging in the classroom, saying that you lie
Well, let me tell you darlin’, what it takes to turn the tide
Who will you be?
Seems like a new thing, it’s just shape-shifting hate
Sometimes it’s your color, others your mistake
My kind was silent, hurtful disdain
And I know she felt it, like cold, steady rain
Who would she be?

Chorus

What you gonna do if the world turns the hate on you?
Will you be the one to flee or be radically new?
I say turn your other cheek – it’s the best you’ve got
Love the hell right out ‘em – lovin’ till it’s gone
Lovin’ till it’s gone
Yeah, I know she felt it, but she never left me dry
Loving me so steadily changed everything inside
I never even saw it leave – that shape-shifting hate
It just turned to nothing, cause she turned her cheek to me
So if it’s scaldin’ like hot water or concrete cold as ice
Turn, turn it to nothing – it’s just mist blockin’ the light
Love the ones that hate you, return ‘em good for ill
Turn, turn it to nothing – like the man up on the hill

Chorus

What you gonna do if the world turns the hate on you?
Will you be the one to flee or be radically new?
I say turn your other cheek – it’s the best you’ve got
Love the hell right out ‘em – lovin’ till it’s gone
Lovin’ till it’s gone!
