“You don’t know what love is”


You don’t know what love is
Until you learned the meaning of the blues
Until you loved the love you’ve had to lose
You don’t know what love is

You don’t know how lips hurt
Until you’ve kissed and had to pay the cost
Until you’ve flipped your heart and you have lost
You dont know what love is

Do you know how a lost heart fears
The thought of suffering
And how lips that taste of tears
Lose their taste for kissing

You dont know how hearts burn
For love that cannot live yet never dies
Until you reached each dawn with sleepless nights
You don’t know what love is

Do you know how a lost heart fears
The thought of suffering
And how lips that taste of tears
Lose their taste for kissing

You don’t know what love is
Until you learned the meaning of the blues
Until you loved the love you had to lose
You don’t know what love is
