Does the light of passion still burn bright
Only love would know, my imagination
Tells me I'm a pent-up fool
In the deep end of the pool
Is the light of passion burnin' bright
Only love would know, only love would know
She lives on the other side, you wanna know the reason why
She arrives at promises and you believe in what she says
Everywhere you go

Is the light of passion burnin' bright
Everywhere you go, only love would know
You think you've been wronged again
Oh what a way to treat a friend
She belongs to other eyes and surely you must realize
She ain't the kind who would soon step aside
Pay any dues at the expense of her pride
Everywhere she goes, only love would know

In the days gone by I came to believe
Everything is trust, all the rest is dust
Mother nature, mother dear, listen to us over here
Are the sounds of laughter ringing true
Only love would know, only love would do
She lives on another plane away from the drivin' rain
She says no, you say yes, and that's how it should be I guess
Only love would know

May the light of love surround you tonight
Everywhere you go, only love would know
You think you were wrong until
You learned once and for all it's still
Once more lesson on the way
Or that is what it seemed to say
She's not the kind who would soon step down
Not the kind you would try to walk around
When only a thought would go very well
You can tell by the touch
Ah but only love would know

Passion burnin' bright
Tears of passion late at night
Is the light of passion burning bright
Everywhereyou go, only love would know
