Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

Love hurts, love scars,
Love wounds and mars,
Any heart not tough
Or strong enough
To take a lot of pain,
Take a lot of pain.
Love is like a cloud;
Holds a lot of rain.
Love hurts,
Love hurts.
I'm young, I know,
But even so
I know a thing or two
I learned from you
I really learned a lot,
Really learned a lot,
Love is like a stove;
Burns you when it's hot.
Love hurts,
Oh, love hurts.
Some fools think of happiness,
Blissfulness, togetherness.
Some fools fool themselves, I guess,
But they're not fooling me.
I know it isn't true,
Know it isn't true.
Love is just a lie
Made to make you blue.
Love hurts,
Oh, oh, love hurts.
I know it isn't true,
Know it isn't true.
Love is just a lie
Made to make you blue.
Love hurts,
Oh, oh, oh, love hurts,
Oh, oh, oh, love hurts,
Oh, oh, oh, love hurts,
Oh, love hurts.
