  • You don't know what love is
    Until you've learned the meaning of the blues
    Until you've loved the love you've had to lose
    You don't know what love is
    You don't know how lips hurt
    Until you've kissed and had to pay the cost
    Until you've flipped your heart and you have lost
    You don't know what love is

    Do you know how a lost heart feels
    The thought of reminiscing
    And how lips lips that taste of tears
    They lose their taste for kissing
    You don't know how hearts burn
    For love that cannot live yet never dies
    Until you've faced each dawn with sleepless eyes
    You don't know what love is

    Do you know how a lost heart feels
    The thought of reminiscing
    And how lips lips that taste of tears
    They lose their taste for kissing
    You don't know how hearts burn
    For love that cannot live yet never dies
    Until you've faced each dawn with sleepless eyes
    You don't know what love is Writer/s: DON RAYE, GENE DE PAUL
