We say we love
But don't know how
And as we are
We cannot reach that far

Oh, we've tried
At times we've lied
But few have known
And fewer have shown

What I'm trying to show you
Is something that I was shown
And what I'm trying to tell you
Is something I was told
But it's so hard to see
And it's so hard to feel

Ooh

Now where do we begin
It's said we must look within
Cause love is to be and to be is to love
So reach up, reach high and someday we'll find out what love is

What I'm trying to show you
Is something that I was shown
And what I'm trying to tell you
Is something I was told.
But it's so hard to see
And it's so hard to feel
