Love is funny, or it's sad,
Or it's quiet, or it's mad.
It's a good thing, or it's bad,
But beautiful...


Beautiful to take a chance
And if you fall, you fall,
And I'm thinking,
I wouldn't mind at all.


Love is tearful, or it's gay,
It's a problem, or it's play.
It's a heartache either way,
But beautiful...


And I'm thinking, if you were mine,
I'd never let you go.
And that would be but beautiful,
I know.


~interlude~


And I'm thinking, if you were mine,
I'd never let you go.
And that would be but beautiful,
That would be but beautiful...
I know.
