She was waiting alone at the station praying for her train to arrive
Thinking bout her destination, the tattered bag had all she had in life
She turned her back on her family, she turned her back on her friends
She turned her back on a married man when she took off that wedding band
She said, Im giving up, silver clouds have turned to grey
Had enough, theres got to be a better way
Giving up, you know youve gotta walk
Theres some things in life still worth fighting for
Aint no big secret so forget all you heard
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word
For some its for better, for some its for worse
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word
Love aint nothing
This time he said was the last time, last time he said just the same
In your heart you know that theyll be a next time
That your battered bones would have to explain
Givin up, nothings changing but the score
Had enough, every night love turns to war
Give it up, gave it all and wanted more
It aint nothing worth dying for
Its no big secret so forget all you heard
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word
For some its a blessing, for some its a curse
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word
Love aint nothing
Forget your mamas rosary beads to get you through this time of need
You know you gotta cross that line
You take it one day at a time
Had enough, the silver clouds all turning grey
Im heading for a better day
No big secret so forget all you heard
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word
For some its for better, for some its for worse
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word
Love aint nothing (it aint nothing now, baby)
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word
Love aint nothing (nothing now, baby)
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word
Love aint nothing (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word
Love aint nothing...
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word

    Love ain't nothing but a four letter word, l-o-v-e. In my opinion it's about being disappointed by love and life. Long time ago you thought love is a very big, beautiful thing, but later you realize it's just a four letter word, you had taken it too seriously. That life-changing moment when you realize that what you once expected from love, life, etc. Did not come true, you're expectations seemed to be too high, you should remind yourself that "some things in life (are) still worth fighting for", don't put up with things that are not good enough for you, leave all that shit behind, you have the nuts :) get your stuff together and run away when you're just fed up with the way your life turned out to be, start again, get lost and find your way ;) pluck up the courage and go on your way, i think it's a song that is bolstering up and tells you that it's never too late for a new beginning, for a new life!
