Lyrics:

Love's a thing that needs one to thrive on
Then it grows, at least that's what I've been told
You can't love someone if you find that
All you get in return is a heart that's cold

Refrain:
They say you need love to love
You gotta have love to love
They all say it works that way
But if it's true
Why do I love you?
Why do I love you?

Seems like you keep tryin' to break me
You do things designed just to make me cry
And I've heard that if warm lips don't touch you
Love won't grow no matter how much you try
(refrain)

[instrumental]

You gotta have love to love
You gotta have love to love
They all say it works that way
But if it's true
Why do I love you?
Why do I love you?
[repeat and fade]
