lyrics

THE THING WITH LOVE
(Markus Rill/Daniel Hertzov)

Can I walk up to her, talk to her
can I look her in the eye and get out a sound?
Will she listen to me, laugh with me
will she see me as I am or shoot me down?

If I could tell that young boy what I know right now

You never have to wonder, never have to worry
never have to think too much
oh-oh, that’s the thing with love

Can I shelter her, worship her
can I live with her and still make her feel free?
Will she lay me down, build me up
will she stick with me and sometimes let me be?

If I could tell that young man what I know right now

You better trust the way you feel
you better not think too much
oh-oh, that’s the thing with love

Looking in the rearview
it’s so easy to be sure
but love remains a mystery
it confounds me to my core

Won’t somebody tell me what I need to know?

Nobody knows just what it means or why it gets so tough
oh-oh, that’s the thing with love
I may never know just what it means but I’ll never have enough
oh-oh, that’s the thing with love
