Lyrics with TikTok’s best attempts

God stood me up
And I don’t know why
Lights are on
But nobody’s home

There ain’t no love like our love
There ain’t no love like our love
Like our love, love, love, love, love

Let the last worms go
And roll in tonight
Don’t wake us up
We got nothing for you

There ain’t no love like our love
There ain’t no love like our love
Like our love, love, love, love, love
