  Shot Of Love session 13, Clover Recorders, Los Angeles CA - 1.may.1981, album version  

Love that's pure hopes all things
Believes all things, won't pull no strings
Won't sneak up into your room, tall, dark an' handsome
Capture your soul and hold it for ransom.
You don't want a love that's pure
You want a drown love, you want a watered-down love

Love that's pure it don't make no false claims
Intercedes for you 'stead of castin' you blame
Will not deceive you or lead you into transgression
Won't write it up an' make you sign a false confession.
You don't want a love that's pure
You want a drown love, you want a watered-down love

Love that's pure won't lead you astray
Won't hold you back, won't get in your way
Won't pervert you, corrupt you with foolish wishes
Will not make you envious, won't make you suspicious.
You don't want a love that's pure
You want a drown love, you want a watered-down love

Love that's pure 's no accident
It knows that it knows, is always content
An eternal flame quietly burnin'
Never needs to be proud, loud or restlessly yearnin'.
You don't want a love that's pure
You want a drown love, you want a watered-down love

Watered-down love
You want a watered-down love
Watered-down love
You want a watered-down love
Yes you do, you know you do
Watered-down love, oh
Watered-down love
Yes you do, you know you do
Watered-down love...  up
