What Do You Know About Love?
Starts with a smile
Moves oceans
Lasts for awhile
She turns a corner
And you lose your mind
And you think how unkind, how unkind
What Do You Know About Love?
What's written in your book
The smallest distraction
And you have to look
She's in your water
And you're in your head
Somewhere else

What Do You Know About Love?
Except that you kill
The deeper you cut it
The more it will spill
You flood her with water
When she shows her flame
And you expect her to get up
And feel the same
What Do You Know About Love?
Except that you don't
She gets herself ready
When she will I won't
You driver her away
And you crash to your knees
She seems happier without me
She seems happier without me

What Do You Know About Love?
Starts with a smile
Moves over mountains
Falls like a child
Cries like a baby
At the sight of its blood
But if only we understood
What Do You Know About Love?
What's written in your book
When she adores you
It's you that gets stuck
It's not the attraction
And the beauty is no blame
It's the dealing with your shame

What Do You Know About Love?
Except that you kill
You beg for forgiveness
For the freeness of your will
You've broken the alter
Where her body is lain
And you question
Wherefore comes this pain?
What Do You Know About Love?
Except that you don't
The heavens have opened
And you say they won't
So you rip out your heart
And you put it to freeze
And she seems happier without me
She seems happier without me
She seems happier, happier
Without me

What Do You Know About Love?
What Do You Know About Love?
What Do You Know About Love?
