(What Is) Love?

  • People told me
    I should write a love song
    Girl you sound so angry,
    You could use some variation
    But I'm lonely
    Negative relations
    I've been hurt so many times
    I don't have the patience

    But I've wished for so long
    For someone to come and show me
    Lead by example
    'Cause I've been waiting
    I've tried every age
    I'm so tired of the game
    I wanna be somebody's girl
    Would you show me the way?

    What if
    I never find and I'm left behind?
    Should I keep hoping for love?
    What if
    I'm still the same?
    Status doesn't change?
    Gotta keep hoping for love

    What is love? What is love? What is love?
    Somebody show me
    What is love? What is love? What is love?
    'Cause if you told me
    What is love? What is love? What is love?
    I wouldn't be lonely (what is love?)
    Please show me

    I've had blind dates
    Hooked up with some real flakes
    I've gone out with church boys
    Musician's are the worst
    I've tried so hard
    'Cause I'm just so die hard
    Tried my best to play the part
    Wish you could see inside

    But I've wished for so long
    For someone to come and show me
    Lead by example
    'Cause I've been waiting
    I've tried every age
    I'm so tired of the game
    I wanna be somebody's girl
    Would you show me the way?

    What if
    I never find
    And I'm left behind?
    Should I keep hoping for love?
    What if
    I'm still the same?
    Status doesn't change?
    Gotta keep hoping for love

    What is love? What is love? What is love?
    Somebody show me
    What is love? What is love? What is love?
    'Cause if you told me
    What is love? What is love? What is love?
    I wouldn't be lonely (what is love?)
    Please show me, what is love

    Na na na
    What is love?
    Na na na na na
    Na na

    I've been alone for the past three years
    On Valentine's Day
    Christmas is no exception
    Birthday's with naughty presents
    Been back and forth, same action
    I just need this to happen
    I'll be singing love's praises
    If you would show me

    What if
    I never find
    And I'm left behind?
    Should I keep hoping for love?
    What if
    I'm still the same?
    Status doesn't change?
    Gotta keep hoping for love

    What is love? What is love? What is love?
    Somebody show me
    What is love? What is love? What is love?
    'Cause if you told me
    What is love? What is love? What is love?
    I wouldn't be lonely (what is love?)
    Please show me

    What is love? What is love?
    What is love? What is love?
    What is love? What is love?
    What is love? What is love?
    What is love? Writer/s: WYNTER GORDON, EMILE DERNST
