What Love Is Lyrics

by The White Stripes

I some respects
I suspect you've got a respectable side
When pushed and pulled and pressured
You still don't hide
But it's for someone else's benefit not for what you wanna do
Until I realize that you've realized, I'm gonna say these words to you

Yeah you don't know what love is, you do as you're told
Just as a child of 10 might act, but you're far too old
You're not hopeless, or helpless, and I hate to sound cold
but you don't know what love is, you just do as you're told

I can see a man can't help but win any problems that may arise
But in his mind there can be no sin if you never criticize
You just keep on repeating all those empty "I Love You's"
Until you see you deserve better, I'm gonna lay right in to you

Yeah you don't know what love is, you do as you're told
Just as a child of 10 might act, but you're far too old
You're not hopeless, or helpless, and I hate to sound cold
but you don't know what love is, no, you don't know what love is, no you don't know what love is, you just do as you're told

Yeah do as you're told
Yeah
