What Love Is

Growing Pains

Beautiful, horrible, magical, terrible reason to laugh and smile.
Reason to cry yourself to sleep at night.
Start a fight.
Makeup, breakup, wrong or right.
Heaven for all it's worth can equally be held right here on earth.


(And no one really knows anything about it)
No, but everybody needs it.
We can't live without it.
(And that's the way it goes)
Darkest day.
Brightest night.
Just some other things you might hear if you ask what love feels like.


And it feels like joy.
And it feels like pain.
And it feels like sunshine.
Feels like rain.
An excuse for dying.
Reason to live.
And if you don't know that's what love is.
Love is, ohhh.


Gentle kiss.
Sweet caress.
Kiss the base of your neck.
Argue until my head hurts.
I can't remember what you said.
Out screaming loud.
Don't know what we're screaming bout.
So confusing.
Yes, it's true.
But if it wasn't there what would we do?


(And no one really knows anything about it)
No, but everybody needs it.
We can't live without it.
(And that's the way it goes)
Ohhh, darkest day.
Brightest night.
Just some other things you might hear if you ask what love feels like.


And it feels like joy.
And it feels like pain.
And it feels like sunshine.
Feels like rain.
An excuse for dying.
Reason to live.
And if you don't know that's what love is.
Love is, ohhh.


That's love.
Anything that can bring you up or break you down. (Break you down)
That's love.
Can be the sun up in your sky or the darkest cloud. (Darkest cloud)
That's love.
And we need it.
That's love.
And we need it. (And we need it)
That's love.
Ohh, ask anybody how it feels.
And it feels like joy.
And it feels like pain.
And it feels like sunshine.
Feels like rain.
An excuse for dying.
Reason to live.
And if you don't know, that's what love is.
Love is.
And it feels like joy.
(Joy)
And it feels like pain.
(Pain)
And it feels like sunshine.
Feels like rain.
An excuse for dying.
Reason to live.
And if you don't know, that's what love is.
Love is, ohhhh.
That's it.
