L-o...whaddo I know
V-e...she's not comin' back to me
L-o...i can't let go
V-e...tell ya what that girl don't mean to me
So you see my friend...
Love is just a four letter word

Once there were schoolyards with children at play
Once there was england...and one sunny day
One kinda woman for one kinda man
How could I know I was not in her plans

Say love...say love

When I was soarin' you urged me to fly
When I was hungry you fed me your lines
Led me to water...you sang me your song
One day when I woke up I found you were gone

Say love...say love...
Say love...say love...
Nobody told me...love is just a four letter word

L is for losin' the love that you crave
And o is when it's over and your heart can't explain
V is for the victim...the victim of the crime
And e is every morning when you break down on time
So you see my friend...love is just a four letter word

L-o...i can't let go
V-e...friends all say just let it be
L-o...oo-oo
V-e...

Forget your illusions...forget what they say
'cause all your dreams of happiness
Have just blown away
Once in a lifetime your spirit will fly
That's what she told me 'fore she told me good-bye

Love...say love
Love...say love
So you see my friend...love is just a four letter word

L is for losers when fortune turns blue
And o is overcomin' what you know to be true
V is for the vengeance that's left out in the rain
And e is each and every night you crumble in pain
So you see my friend...love is just a four letter word
So you see my friend...
I say "stop - don't say it"
So you see my friend...love is just a four letter word

L-o...whaddo I know
V-e...she's not comin' back to me
L-o...i can't let go
V-e...tell ya what that girl don't mean to me

We're just the victims of the powers that be
