  • Tonight we drink to youth
    And holding fast to truth
    Don't want to lose what I had as a boy

    My heart still has a beat
    But love is now a feat
    As common as a cold day in LA
    Sometimes at night alone I wonder
    Is there a spell that I am under
    Keeping me from seeing the real thing?

    Love hurts
    But sometimes it's a good hurt and it feels like I'm alive

    Love sings
    When it transcends the bad things, have a heart and try me
    'Cause without love I won't survive

    I'm fettered and abused
    Stand naked and accused
    Should I surface this one-man submarine?

    I only want the truth
    So tonight we drink to youth
    I'll never lose what I had as a boy
    Sometimes at night alone I wonder
    Is there a spell that I am under
    Keeping me from seeing the real thing?

    Love hurts
    But sometimes it's a good hurt and it feels like I'm alive

    Love sings
    When it transcends the bad things
    Have a heart and try me
    'Cause without love I won't survive

    Without love I won't survive

    Love hurts
    But sometimes it's a good hurt and it feels like I'm alive

    Love sings
    When it transcends the bad things
    Have a heart and try me
    'Cause without love I won't survive

    Love hurts, oh it hurts
    Without love I won't survive

    Love hurts, oh, oh, it hurts
    Without love I won't survive Writer/s: Brandon Boyd, Michael Einziger, Chris Kilmore, Ben Kenney, Jose II Pasillas
