You Don't Know What Love Is Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

In some respects I suspect
You've got a respectable side
When pushed and pulled and pressured
You seldom run and hide

But it's for someone elses 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 at ten 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 your man cant 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 say you deserve better
I'm gonna lay right into you

Yeah, you don't know what love is
You just do as you're told
Just as a child at ten might act
But you're far too old

Youre 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, you do as you're told, yeah
