Foreigner – I Want To Know What Love Is lyrics
I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over

I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I'm older
Aaaah woah-ah-aah

Now this mountain I must climb
Feels like a world upon my shoulders
And through the clouds I see love shine
It keeps me warm as life grows colder

In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
Can't stop now, I've traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me
Aaaah woah-oh-ooh

I'm gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me, oooh ooh-ooh ooh-ooh oooh
I've got nowhere left to hide
It looks like love has finally found me

In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
I can't stop now, I've traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me
I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
And I wanna feel, I want to feel what love is
And I know, I know you can show me

Let's talk about love
(I wanna know what love is) the love that you feel inside
(I want you to show me) I'm feeling so much love
(I wanna feel what love is) no, you just cannot hide
(I know you can show me) yeah, woah-oh-ooh
I wanna know what love is, let's talk about love
(I want you to show me) I wanna feel it too
(I wanna feel what love is) I wanna feel it too
And I know, and I know, I know you can show me
Show me what is real, woah (woah), yeah I know
(I wanna know what love is) hey I wanna know what love
(I want you to show me), I wanna know, I wanna know, want know
(I wanna feel what love is), hey I wanna feel, love
I know you can show me, yeah

    There were events in his life that were keep on repeating. More or less they causing him pain or unease. He wants a little time to think what they are all about because he sense that he is not learning anything about it. Maybe he is too busy giving his time to these 'something' and yet he is not realizing why these things are happening to him. Maybe he has fall in love so many time but he didn't find the true happiness being in a relationship. Maybe he is loving each of them in his own way not on the way they should be loved. Maybe he is selfish guy - I am not sure. He is tired of these pains and he is deciding to resolve what it is all about., what it is all about to be happy in loving someone/somebody.

    He has been in relationships but they always end the same, in "heartache and pain". But he's not going top stop searching and hoping. Along this difficult road, a road that feels like he's carrying the "world upon his shoulders" he finds his eyes gazing upward to see the rays of the sun shining down through the clouds. And this helps him to realize that no matter how many times he's been disappointed, no matter how many false starts, just as the sun will shine again despite the bad weather, he is holding on to the hope that true love will one day come his way. The game is over. It doesn't matter what anyone thinks or how they perceive him anymore. He's growing older. And with god's help he won't give up until he finds what this love is all about.

    I feel it is about a man that has searched for his answer to love through many faces during the different seasons in his life. He has found someone special that he has a greater connection with and has to step back to take a closer look at the love that he has found in her. It scares him that it could end like so many loves before and the time he has waisted he feels older and wants this love to last. There is hope and he will take that chance again as long as she can show him through the good and the hard times what love is really all about. Show him but also give him the time to reflect on what he could lose if he lets it slip away.

    When I sing this song it is my prayer to God. Through all I have gone through I just want love, unconditional love, healing, to get over all the bad. Because I have been climbing mountains, and I use my victories, my failures, my hurts, my healings to encourage others. I use this song, so beautiful, so simple to express it. Because after all the unbelievable ugly, I have been shown love, found love and can give love.

    Totally different meaning to me. My mother died in 1985, this song came up on the way home from the hospital, on the way to the funeral, exactly to the hour 1 week after her death and at other coincidental times. The word to me make me think of a person who has passed away and making their way to heaven. Possibly the travel time after passing.

    He has been hurt so bad, so many times, that there is a wall he has run into. He has found someone who he knows he can love, but he is scared. He wants to wait, because it is easier than taking the chance of getting hurt again. But, he has been so lonely for such a long time, he wants to take a chance. He has long since been closed off to love. He simply wants to chance. Taking a chance.
