What’s love got to do with it?


When you spend a lifetime

calling out my name

seeing me just the way I am

midst the cobweb’s spiral


What’s love got to do with it?


When we switched roles to reverse

and you played the nurse

when you let me run freely

trusting that I would return


What’s love got to with it?


When you pressed the wrong key

and the music played out of tune

those hard knocks of life

when I welcomed you back in


What’s love got to do with it?


When I take my shades off

and look up at the sun

I see you standing there

It becomes so very clear–


What love’s got to do with it.
