Lyrics


I've gotta take a little time A little time to think things over I better read between the lines In case I need it when I'm older

Now this mountain I must climb Feels like the world upon my shoulders Through the clouds I see love shine It keeps me warm as life grows colder

In my life there's been heartache and pain I don't know if I can face it again Can't stop now, I've traveled so far To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is I want you to show me I wanna feel what love is I know you can show me

I'm gonna take a little time A little time to look around me I've got nowhere left to hide It looks like love has finally found me

In my life there's been heartache and pain I don't know if I can face it again Can't stop now, I've traveled so far To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is I want you to show me I wanna feel what love is I know you can show me

I wanna know what love is I want you to show me (And I wanna feel) I wanna feel what love is (I know) I know you can show me

I wanna know what love is (Love that you feel inside) I want you to show me (And I'm feelin' so much love) I wanna feel what love is (No, you just can't hide) I know you can show me

I wanna know what love is (Let's talk about love) I want you to show me (I wanna feel it) I wanna feel what love is (I wanna feel it, too) (And I know, and I know) I know you can show me I wanna know what love is (I wanna know) I want you to show me (I wanna know, I wanna know, I wanna know) I want to feel what love is
