Love is a verb
It ain't a thing
It's not something you hold
It's not something you scream

When you show me love
I don't need your words
Yeah, love ain't a thing
Love is a verb
Love ain't a thing
Love is a verb

Love ain't a crush
It ain't an excuse
No, you can't get through love
On just a pile of 'IOU's'

Love ain't a drug
Despite what you've heard
Yeah, love ain't a thing
Love is a verb
Love ain't a thing
Love is a verb

So you gotta show, show, show me
Show, show, show me
Show, show, show me
That love is a verb

You gotta show, show, show me
Show, show, show me
Show, show, show me
That love is a verb

Love ain't a thing
Love is a verb
