"Without The Love" is a song by Demi Lovato which appears as the third track on their fourth album, DEMI.

Background

"Without The Love" is a mid-tempo pop-rock song in which Demi questions why a guy is professing his love when they know he doesn't care that much, singing lines such as "Why are you singing me love songs/What good is a love song/A love song without the love." The song is rumored to be about their 2010 break-up with Joe Jonas.

Critical Reception

On May 9, 2013, in a track-by-track Billboard review, writer Jason Lipshutz stated: "The album's most enjoyable sucker-punch of a hook -- "Why are you singing me love songs/What good is a love song/What good is a love song… without the love?" -- is paired with lush, detailed production, highlighted by strings that soar in between plucks. Lovato sneers gleefully, and even pitches out a Joe DiMaggio simile or two for good measure." [1]

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You pull my strings, and push my soul
You fool my heart with every note
You drop the beat, and kiss my face
You make me move, then cut the base
And you work so hard to get me, just to let me go
Yeah you put me in the spotlight, just to steal the show
And you try to take me home like you're DiMaggio, oh
It's such a joke

[Chorus]
Why are you singing me love songs
What good is a love song? What good is a love song, without the love
Why are you singing me love songs
What good is a love song? What good is a love song, without the love
Why are we acting like lovers, we don't know each other
Even though we used to rule the world
Why are you singing me love songs
What good is a love song? A love song without the love

[Verse 2]
I'm so confused, it's getting old, you wear your ring, but leave me cold
You're beautiful, but cause me pain
You play my heart like it's a game
And you work so hard to get me, just to let me go
Yeah you put me in the spotlight, just to steal the show
And you try to take me home like you're DiMaggio, oh
It's criminal

[Chorus 2]
Why are you singing me love songs
What good is a love song? What good is a love song, without the love
Why are you singing me love songs
What good is a love song? What good is a love song, without the love
Why are we acting like lovers, we don't know each other
Even though we used to rule the world
Why are you singing me love songs
What good is a love song? A love song without the love

[Bridge]
This is the bending for the break
When we forget the harmony
This is how water colors fade into distant memories

[Chorus 3]
Why are you singing me love songs
What good is a love song? What good is a love song, without the love
Why are you singing me love songs
What good is a love song?
What good is a love song, without the love
Why are we acting like lovers, we don't know each other
Even though we used to rule the world
Why are you singing me love songs
What good is a love song?
A love song without the love
