What is love
Oh baby, don't hurt me
Don't hurt me no more
Oh, baby don't hurt me
Don't hurt me no more

What is love
Yeah

Oh, i don't know why you're not there
I give you my love, but you don't care
So what is right and what is wrong
Gimme a sign

What is love
Oh baby, don't hurt me
Don't hurt me no more
What is love
Oh baby, don't hurt me
Don't hurt me no more

Whoa whoa whoa, oooh oooh
Whoa whoa whoa, oooh oooh

Oh, i don't know, what can i do
What else can i say, it's up to you
I know we're one, just me and you
I can't go on

What is love
Oh baby, don't hurt me
Don't hurt me no more
What is love
Oh baby, don't hurt me
Don't hurt me no more

Whoa whoa whoa, oooh oooh
Whoa whoa whoa, oooh oooh

What is love, oooh, oooh, oooh
What is love, oooh, oooh, oooh

What is love
Oh baby, don't hurt me
Don't hurt me no more

Don't hurt me
Don't hurt me

I want no other, no other lover
This is your life, our time
When we are together, i need you forever
Is it love

What is love
Oh baby, don't hurt me
Don't hurt me no more
What is love
Oh baby, don't hurt me
Don't hurt me no more (oooh, oooh)

What is love
Oh baby, don't hurt me
Don't hurt me no more
What is love
Oh baby, don't hurt me
Don't hurt me no more (oooh, oooh)

What is love?

    Well, I think it means that his girlfriend broke up with him and he's singing "what is love" because maybe the girlfriend was the actually the first person he fell for; completely. But, hey, this song is hardcore.

    It's something you feel but you can never touch, just like the wind... And something you long for but you can never reach, just like the secrets of the soul...

    I think that love is self-sacrificing willed concern for and giving to another even if attraction and feelings are diminished or absent and even if little or nothing is received in return all with divine motivation

    Love fills your heart with happiness, this is a feeling which gives you wings and lets you fly above clouds. But if ones you lose it, love brokes your heart into many pieces and the only thing you feel is a deep unspeakable pain...
