🎶 Lyrics 🎤

What is love
If it's not with you
I know when you're alone you feel it too
In your arms is where I long to be
Cause being with you gives me sanity

Oh,listen to me darling
I wake up every morning
Thinking bout the way you feel
Oh, I wonder if you know it
And what good is the party
If you're not around
Listen to me now

What good is love
If it's not your love
What good is love
If it's not your love

What's a song
If you can't hear it too
Can't imagine dancing without you
A shooting star, ain't really nothing to see
If you ain't right here standing next to me

Oh, listen to me darling
I wake up every morning
Thinking bout the way you feel
Oh,I wonder if you know it
And what good is the party
If you're not around
Listen to me now

What good is love
If it's not your love
What good is love
If it's not your love

What is love
If it's not with you
I know when you're alone you feel it too
In your arms is where I long to be
Cause being with you gives me sanity

Oh, listen to me darling
I wake up every morning
Thinking bout the way you feel
Oh,I wonder if you know it
And what good is the party
If you're not around
Listen to me now

What good is love
If it's not your love
What good is love
If it's not your love

What's the song?
What's the words?
If it's not with you
If it's not with you
You can't hear it too
I know when you're alone
You've got to feel it too
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah
What is love?
