Mama never taught me how to love
Daddy never taught me how to feel
Mama never taught me how to touch
Daddy never showed me how to heal

Mama never set a good example
Daddy never held mama's hand
Mama found everything hard to handle
Daddy never stood up like a man

I've walked around broken
Emotionally frozen
Getting on, getting on

How do you love someone
Without getting hurt
How do you love someone
Without crawling in the dirt
So far in my life
Clouds have blocked the sun
How do you love, how do you love someone
How do you love, how do you love someone

I was always the chosen child
Their biggest scandal I became
They told me I'd never survive
But survival's my middle name

I've walking around hoping
Just barely coping
Getting on, getting on

How do you love someone
Without getting hurt
How do you love someone
Without crawling in the dirt
So far in my life
Clouds have blocked the sun
How do you love, how do you love someone
How do you love, how do you love someone

It's hard to talk
To say what's deep inside
It's hard to tell the truth
When you've always lied

How do you love someone
Without getting hurt
How do you love someone
Without crawling in the dirt
So far in my life
Clouds have blocked the sun
How do you love, how do you love someone
How do you love, how do you love someone

How do you love someone
Without getting hurt
How do you love someone
Without crawling in the dirt
So far in my life
Clouds have blocked the sun
How do you love, how do you love someone
How do you love, how do you love someone

Someone

    I think the meaning is with is when you have been hurt its hard to believe in love or even try and love. When most of the time the love you knew relied on lies and secrets
