Tell me what you see
Is it close to what you dreamed
If I play a part
Can I be redeemed?

We pore through the passages
The leather volume shelves
But they only leave us wondering
Can we find ourselves
In the book of love, oh,
In the book of love

Looking for the one
Waiting on a day
Countless dinner parties
And all the games we play

Often sung processional
Solemn wedding vow
A picture in a picture frame
That beauty can allow
In the book of love, oh
In the book of love

And love becomes a temple
And we begin to feel
Then an unfeeling oracle
Will say you did come near
But you are not welcome here

This is who I am
All the places that I've been
Fondness and regret
Every love that I've been in

And I've played all the characters
The fool, the friend, the wife
And no matter what the ending is
The story of my life
Is the book of love, oh,
Is the book of love
