History Hates Lovers Lyrics – Oublaire

Who’s gonna tell us the stories, that our textbooks don’t?
Tales of love that stay blurry, cause our courses won’t
Ignore the way they’re designed to erase the past
To keep good intentions secret
To force.. a mask

Too many handwritten letters
Signed to: my dearest, with love
All pulled from their papers, ripped out as cover up
To disguise endearment, as friendly notes
It doesn’t take a scholar, to know how this one goеs
And historians will call them

Close friends, bеsties, roommates, colleagues, anything but lovers.
History hates lovers
Sidekicks, family, good pals, buddies, anything but lovers
History hates lovers

40 years living together
Wearing the same wedding bands
Two kids and a golden retriever
“Just friends” don’t live like that
They don’t look at each other
With love in their eyes
With hopes to settle down for the rest of their lives

How many decades of hiding?
21 centuries of hate
Some things may not’ve been okay back then
But it’s sure all right today
Too afraid to call it what it is

It doesn’t take a scholar
, to understand this
And historians will call them

Close friends, besties, roommates, colleagues, anything but lovers
History hates lovers
Sidekicks, family, good pals, buddies, anything but lovers
History hates lovers

Keep it hidden
Rewrite history
Leave it wrapped up in a mystery
Because no one can figure it out (I think they figured it out)
Stash the proof, hide the evidence
Keep it locked until it’s relevant
Because they can’t figure it out (I think they figured it out)

Because no one can figure it out
I think they figured it out
And historians will call them

Close friends, besties, roommates, colleagues, anything but lovers
Sidekicks, family, good pals, buddies, anything but lovers
Close friends, besties, roommates, colleagues, anything but lovers
 History hates lovers
Sidekicks, family, good pals, buddies, anything but lovers
History hates lovers
