Hynde, Chrissie - You Don't Know What Love Is Lyrics




You don't know what love is
Until you've learned the meaning of the blues
Until you've loved a love you've had to lose
You don't know what love is

You don't know how lips hurt
Until you've kissed and had to pay the cost
Until you've flipped your heart and you have lost
You don't know what love is

Do you know how lost heart feels
At the thought of reminiscing?
And how lips that taste of tears
Lose their taste for kissing

You don't know how hearts burn
For love that cannot live yet never dies
Until you've faced each dawn with sleepless eyes
You don't know what love is

You don't know what love is
Until you've learned the meaning of the blues
Until you've loved a love you've had to lose
You don't know what love is
What love is
What love is

  37. Linn Spencer

    "You Don't Know What Love Is" written by Don Raye (lyrics) and Gene de Paul (music) in 1941.
    You don't know what love is

    'Til you've learned the meaning of the blues

    Until you've loved a love you've had to lose,

    You don't know what love is.

    You don't know how lips hurt

    Until you've kissed and had to pay the cost,

    Until you've flipped your heart and you have lost,

    You don't know what love is.

    Do you know how a lost heart fears

    At the thought of reminiscing,

    And how lips that taste of tears

    Lose their taste for kissing?

    You don't know how hearts burn

    For love that can, not live yet never dies.

    Until you've faced each dawn with sleepless eyes,

    You don't know what love is.
