I climb in bed
She's distracted
Flipping pages
Asking for the matches
Cigarette smoke hangs
Just like a curtain
That makes me wonder
Is her love for certain?

I see the truth now
She gave me the blues today
She turns the lights out
Whenever I want to play

Chorus:
(L.O.V.E.) She don't get the message
All I ever wanted was your love
All I ever wanted was your love

Our love is dyin'
On the cold sheets
My body aching
To warm a heart with no heat
Just a whisper
Of the "L" word
Makes her shiver
She touches love with cold feet

In her heart lies the naked truth
I could use today
She turns the lights out
Before my heart can say...

Chorus

Bridge:
L's the word that I heard
From your lips, your hips, your fingertips
L's the word in the wind
Love has touched my heart again
L's the word to be heart
From your lips, your hips, your fingertips

Chorus

Bridge

Vamp 1:
(L.O.V.E.)

Vamp 2:
(L.O.V.E.)
(L's the word that I heard)
(L's the word that I heard)
(L's the word that I heard)
(L's the word that I heard)
(from your lips, your hips, your fingertips)
(from your lips, your hips, your fingertips)

Vamp
