What Good is Love For

Versions: #1#2
What good use does love have?
We’re always being told
these senseless fairytales
What use does loving have?
 
Love can’t explain itself!
It’s just something like that!
that comes from God knows where
and takes you by the hair.
Me, I’ve heard some folks say,
That love only brings pain,
That love it makes you cry,
What use is loving why?
 
Love what use does it have?
It serves to bring us joy
Brings huge tears in our eyes…
A sad and splendid sight!
And yet folks often say
That love’s not all that gay
That out of two there’s one
Who’s never happy, hun’…
 
But even if love’s lost
The love that one has known,
Leaves a taste of honey -
Love is eternity!
 
All that is good and well,
But when you’ve reached the end,
There’s nothing left for you,
But one great big boo-hoo…
 
But all that seems just now
To you an agony,
Tomorrow, it’ll be
A joyful memory!
 
So if I’ve understood,
Without love in my life,
Without its joys and pains,
I would have lived in vain?
Of course! Just look at me!
Just every time I believe,
And I’ll believe always…
That’s just what love is for!
 
But you, you are the last
But you, you are the first!
Before you, there was none
With you, I feel just fine!
 
It’s you that I wanted,
It’s you who’s meant for me,
You, I will always love….
That’s the use love is for!….
