Where Does Love Come From

What have I done to deserve this?
What is my crime?
I didn’t ask to be born like his,
not at this time
You can ask everyone
but you’ll never know
Where does love come from
and when it’s gone where does it go

She didn’t ask much
more than anyone else,
she didn’t want to lose
He didn’t ask what
are the questions
He didn’t want to choose
You can read all the
books you want,
you’ll never know
Where does love come from
and when it’s gone where does it go

Bridge

I’ve heard the wise men and I’ve listened to fools
Not one, not one of them had something I could use
Everyone’s got accusations but nobody can prove
just where it was the night I met you,
where it’s been since you’ve been gone
and where was love that night when everything went wrong

What a beautiful dream,
just to fall in love
the dream of a child
To forever feel
like you just came home,
I dream it each night
I’m beginning to think
that I will never know
Where does love come from
and when it’s gone where does it go
You plant a seed and then
you let it grow
Where does love come from
and when it’s gone where does it go
