You don't know the meaning of uncontrolled desire
You were always hanging just above the fire
Now and then you come close enough to just stay warm
And you think that you win 'cause you never give in
And you've never been burned, ah, but you're gonna learn

That you don't know love
Till it's chilled you to the bone
Turned you inside out
And left you all alone

And you don't know love
Till you've watched it die and then
You have to try again
You don't know love

Like a child you wander out into the storm
You defy the thunder, but the lightning keeps you warm
The innocence you've shown is something I'd like to know
And I'm feeling that I'm finally crossing the line
But I won't be alone, yes, I've known all along

That you don't know love
Till it's chilled you to the bone
Turned you inside out
And left you all alone

And you don't know love
Till you've watched it die and then
You have to try again
You don't know love

You don't know love
Till it's chilled you to the bone
Turned you inside out
And left you all alone

And you don't know love
Till you've watched it die and then
You have to try again
You don't know love
No, you don't know love
