Love Hurts

From The Elvis Costello Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Love hurts, love scars, love wounds
And mars, any heart
Not tough or strong enough
To take a lot of pain, take a lot of pain
Love is like a cloud
Holds a lot of rain
Love hurts...
Ooh, ooh, love hurts.

I'm young, I know, but even so
I know a thing or two
And I learned from you
I really learned a lot, really learned a lot
Love is like a flame
It burns you when it's hot
Love hurts...
Ooh, ooh, love hurts.

Some fools think of happiness,
Blissfulness, togetherness
Some fools fool themselves, I guess
They're not foolin' me.

I know it isn't true, I know it isn't true
Love is just a lie
Made to make you blue
Love hurts...
Ooh, ooh, love hurts
Ooh, ooh, love hurts.
