You said you couldn't find
Anyone to love ya
I said there's more to life
Than a broken heart
Did it console ya?

I've seen it in your eyes
And I've read it in books
Who wants love
Without the looks?

You know the word is please
You say it from your knees
Show some respect
Hey baby, genuflect

Once I like crying
Twice I like laughter
Come on tell me
What I'm after

I said you gotta stop
Chasing rainbows
You said I'm just
Staying up
And anyway I like it
When the rain goes

I've seen it in your eyes
I've read it in books
Who wants love
Without the looks?

Once I like crying
Twice I like laughter
Come on tell me
What I'm after

There's not that much to us
I hide the little with the lot
You still expect a loving fuss
After showing all you've got

I've seen it in your eyes
I've read it in books
Who wants love
Without the looks?

That's all
