I think love is something we'd better understand
If it was something we held in our hand.
Though I'm not quite sure what I would do
If I saw someone I liked, maybe break it in two?
So I could give them half and maybe they'd do the same
Or just walk away like its some sort of game.
Or let that fear grip you, your stomach in knots
So you then lock it away into a box
And if you didn't trust yourself with the key,
You could throw it away, maybe to sea?
That way you could save yourself some of the pain
Even though it does a person good to stand in the rain.
No, if love was something I could touch with my fingertips
I would smash my love into a thousand little bits
And I would hand a bit out to everyone I meet
Even if its a stranger I pass down the street.
I would give my love to everyone, from coast to coast
Even those that don't deserve it because they need it the most.
Because love is something as simple as a smile
And it's something we only encounter once in a while.
So the whole world better be prepared
Because what is love, if it cannot be shared?
