In a sitch like this you've gotta think
And I don't think you think about the way he thinks
And I know you live life for yourself
But it all comes down to the way you help

And I know your life is such a hell
You wake up early and you work until
You have your drinks at 5 o'clock
The hours blend and your thoughts all haunt

Your hopes, your dreams, your everything
Well, momma I hope, I dream, that you won't leave

And I have a question!
What is love?
What is love?
Love-e-e-e-e
Is it giving up?
'Cause that's not how you raised me, yeah.

In a sitch like this you gotta think
And I don't think you think about the way
She thinks
And I know you work hard everyday
But it all comes down to the way you're
Paid

And I know you're oh so sorry dad
I truly believe that you're a better man
To share one kiss then give away
All the love you come home everyday

To your hopes, your dreams, your everything
Well daddy, I hope, I dream that she won't leave

And I have a question!
What is love?
What is love?
Love-e-e-e-e
Is it giving up?
Cause that's not how you raised me.
And what is love?
What is love?
Love-e-e-e-e

See, I don't know anymore;
I used to look up to that love.

    He's writing about how his parents' divorce shook his entire thought about what "love" really is. Many people, when their parents fall out of love, stop believing in it because they have no reason to believe that it actually lasts. The line "What is love? See, I don't know anymore. I used to look. up. to. that. love." sums up the whole song.
    I love Chris Drew because he says things that so many people feel in such an honest way. He knew that his parents might hear this song and feel guilty, but he needed to express the fact that he was lost at that point.
