  • Love, I have wounds
    Only you can mend
    You can mend, oh, oh, oh
    I guess that's love
    I can't pretend
    I can't pretend, oh, oh, oh

    Feel, my skin is rough
    But it can be cleansed
    It can be cleansed, oh, oh, oh

    And my arms are tough
    But they can be bent
    They can be bent
    And I wanna fight
    But I can't contend

    I guess that's love
    I can't pretend
    I can't pretend, oh, oh, ooh-oh
    oh oh oh

    Whoa
    Yeah
    Oh, oh, oh, oh

    Oh, feel our bodies grow
    And our souls they play, yeah
    Yeah love I hope you know
    How much my heart depends, yeah

    But I guess that's love I can't pretend
    I guess that's love I can't pretend, oh, oh
    But I guess that's love I can't pretend
    I guess that's love I can't pretend, oh, oh

    Oh, feel our bodies grow
    And our souls they play, yeah
    Yeah love I hope you know
    How much my heart depends, yeah

    I guess that's love
    I can't pretend
    I can't pretend, oh, oh, oh

    I guess that's love
    I can't pretend
    I can't pretend, oh, oh, oh Writer/s: Tom Peter Odell
