Love Should't Be A Slap In The Face

Rewrite of Kiss song Love Is A Slap In The Face


Let it bring you up

Never ever let it knock you

Or take you down

Drag your broken heart all over town

Tell you how you life should be livin'



Ain't supposed to hurt

Supposed to be Heaven

Not a newfound Hell

Baby, baby

It's a happy life

You should be livin'


I never thought I'd see the day

You would call hurtin' good

Oh no no

I never knew

Never dreamed

So easy

You could lose yourself

God girl, how can you sit there denying?

He's taking you 6 feet down

And you're lettin' him so easy

Oh why oh why

Before the end

Won't you please just listen?


At no time should love be a slap in the face

If you get burned

Why would you wanna go back?

Make again that same ole mistake

Don't ask for my opinion

If you can't take it

Cause this is the truth

Gay or straight

Baby, love should never be a slap in the face


Singin' na na na na na

Na na na na na

Oh Hell na, woman


The horror story of your life and love

Oh it's got such a dreadful hold on me

I can hardly bear it

So sad and bitter

Plain as day to see

He turned your life upside down

Poisoned you from the inside out

Don't know or understand why

So often it fails to make you stand up to him and shout


I never dreamed

You'd get so bent

Hellbent on hurting yourself

Breaking yourself

Dyin' watching you deny it

Baby, are you really not feelin' that pain




I never knew one woman

Once so brave

Once so bright

Ooh I never believed she'd fool herself

Into running away into that devil's night

I love you

But I can't stand here

Standing by just watching silently forever, babe

I can't

I won't keep hidin'

Your darkest secret inside


Oh no no

Love should never be no abusive ball and chain

Weight, weighting you down

It should't beat you up for hurtin' in the night

It should't start some unneeded fight

Should't drive you insane

Oh baby, don't say you want my opinion

Cause it just hurts too much

Tryin' to explain

Then watchin' you still walk away

With that same mean ole ball and chain

Into an early, untimely woman's grave


Singin' na na na na

Na na na na na na

Oh Hell na na na na , woman
