lyrics

It’s a million,
It’s one in a million chance,
It’s gonna fill you up and leave you shooting blanks

I’m gonna take it
I’m gonna take it if I can,
It’s gonna fill me up, it’s gonna leave me empty-handed

And that’s what love is
And that’s what it will always be,
It’s gonna fill you up and leave you down on your knees

Aw aw aw…

And there’s no reason
And there’s no reason at all
It’s gonna fill you up, it’s gonna slam you against the wall

Ain’t that love?
Ain’t that love for ye, boys?
It’s no jubilee, it’s no heavenly rejoice

And that’s what love is
And that’s what it will always be,
It’s gonna fill you up and leave you down on your knees

Aw aw aw…

I’ve been hungry
I’ve been a dog with a bone
I swam in the lake of love and come out alone

And that’s love for ye
That’s how love always was
It pushes you up the road and then it leaves you lost

And that’s what love is
And that’s what it will always be,
It’s gonna fill you up and leave you down on your knees

Aw aw aw...
