I know how it feels to be head over heels
To be lost in true love and the light of the moon
When everything seems to be coming up roses
And every word seems to be rhyming with June
Suddenly, all of your dreams have come true
Happiness lives in your heart
Then out of nowhere, one becomes two
And everything seems to be falling apart

Is it love? When your heart, feels like it's broken
Is it love? And you just can't take anymore
Is it love? When there's nothing left to be spoken
Is it love? And there's nothing worth listening for
Is it love? Ooh ooh

I know what it means to get caught up in dreams
And in prayers that are answered with each passing day
When loving and laughter are birds of a feather
And sharing and caring is one simple way
You know you'll never be alone
That someone will always be near
Then you turn around when your best friend is gone
Oh, where do they go? When they just disappear?

Is it love? When your heart, feels like it's broken
Is it love? And you just can't take anymore
Is it love? When the good times have all been forgotten
Is it love? And you fear there won't be anymore
Is it love? Ooh ooh

There's no answer, there seems to be nothing to say
In your anger would you even hear anyway
It was magic but somehow you've broken the spell
It was heaven and somehow it's turned into hell

Is it love? When you know that your heart has been broken
Is it love? And you just can't take it anymore
Is it love? When you feel more than you could imagine
Is it love? Now there's nothing that's worth living for
Is it love? Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Another expression of love....
You could be falling in love...
Oh, to be in love.... I want to be in love....
C'mere darlin' lets's talk about it......
Come on right over here
Sit down.... It could be.... Love.... I want to be in love
