It's called love
And every cruelty will cloud it
And his lie
True love could never allow it
'cos it's a lie that we have ceased to believe
We've said goodbye but it won't take it's leave

Why should it take the tears of a woman
To see how men are

Perspective
It's no mystery
What you don't know always gets you
It will hurt you and desert you
So you'd better see
That it's a damage ever done by degrees
And some will take eternity to believe

Why should it take the tears of a woman
To see how men are

'cos love is a giving with no need of return
It lends itself to everything
And maybe one day man will see
That love is a lesson money never taught us to learn
Love is the power to act
Without the premise that there's nothing for free

And sometimes when we're just getting by and getting along
It's like we're scared to see that something is wrong

Why should it take the tears of a woman
To see how men are
