I climb in bed
She's distracted
Flipping pages
Asking for the matches

Cigarette smoke hangs
Just like a curtain
That makes me wonder
Is her love for certain?

I see the truth now
She gave me the blues today
She turns the lights out
Whenever I want to play

(L O V E)
She don't get the message
All I ever wanted was your love
All I ever wanted was your love

Our love is dyin'
On the cold sheets
My body aching
To warm a heart with no heat

Just a whisper
Of the L word
Makes her shiver
She touches love with cold feet

In her heart lies the naked truth
I could use today
She turns the lights out
Before my heart can say

I climb in bed
She's distracted
Flipping pages
Asking for the matches

Cigarette smoke hangs
Just like a curtain
That makes me wonder
Is her love for certain?

I see the truth now
She gave me the blues today
She turns the lights out
Whenever I want to play

(L O V E)
She don't get the message
All I ever wanted was your love
All I ever wanted was your love

L's the word that I heard
From your lips, your hips, your fingertips
L's the word in the wind
Love has touched my heart again

L's the word to be heard
From your lips, your hips, your fingertips

(L O V E)
She don't get the message
All I ever wanted was your love
All I ever wanted was your love

L's the word that I heard
From your lips, your hips, your fingertips
L's the word in the wind
Love has touched my heart again

L's the word to be heard
From your lips, your hips, your fingertips

L O V E, L O V E
L's the word that I heard, L's the word that I heard
L's the word that I heard, L's the word that I heard
From your lips, your hips, your fingertips
From your lips, your hips, your fingertips
